I had the honour of having both my adrenal glands removed last
December. I got over the op very well, or thought I did.
What exhaustion! It's like walking in to a brick wall at about 3pm,
and there's nothing I can seem to do about it - any suggestions would
be gratefully appreciated. After 3pm I could grump for England.
I am on .1mg fludrocortisone and I have tried various combinations of
hydrocortisone between 20mg and 40mg. Currently 10mg at 7am, 10mg at
1pm and 5mg at 5pm. The Endo seems quite happy for me to find my own
level and spacing, as long as I don't go above 30mg long term.
My other area of ignorance relates to what is called an 'adrenal
crisis'. How do I know if I am having one, or better still - how do I
know if one is on it's way?
