    Re: Pre pill cortisol test

    OK, I’m quickly back with one link to add. The thread dates clear back to 2014, but it involved conversation with two of our members who had dealt with both lymphoma and Cushing’s. Unfortunately,...

    Re: New diagnosis- questions

    Lacy, you’re so very welcome! And yes, it’ll be a help when you can check on those test results.

    Re: Stalin (pug) may be joining the club

    Thanks so much for this clarification, and yes it makes sense -- that a microtumor might have been too small to visualize under these circumstances. So we won't jump to any conclusions yet, and will...
