A doctor is the last person in the world whose opinion you should seek if you think you have a malpractice claim. Quite naturally, the doctor will have a defendant's perspective. And, in matters of the law, the doctor is a lay person (admittedly, a well-informed lay person). Just as you wouldn't seek medical care from a lawyer, it is a bad practice to seek legal advice from a doctor. If you think you have a malpractice claim, look for a plaintiff's attorney who has plenty of medical malpractice experience.

Do you think damages are always going to just slap you in the face? What about the fees the mapracticeor charges....every time I see a Dr it costs $1000 when you add in lab fees etc?
What about having your dieing father tell your mother that you are lazy and will take advantage of her for the rest of your life....when your free t3 count is .7 range 1-5 and testosterone is 180 range 250-850? and every Dr you see says you are "just depressed and need prozac"?
I tried not to reply to this thread because i hate it but people (sheep) like you are the reason prozac and lipitor pushing drs are bankrupting the entire country while enriching themselves.
and cpelll dadnatrons apparent blind defense if any and all actions committed by a dr is the definition of "whore".

Bigironkiller, a second opinion may be wise to get. Another doc may want to treat your pituitary tumor with medication to shrink it without waiting a year.
Why hold off on armor because of cortisol? Is he concerned that treating your thyroid will stress your adrenals? If your cortisol is too low, there are docs that are able to treat that while also treating your thyroid.

He wanted to wait on Armour until he confirmed my low cortisol b/c if my Cort is low stimulating my thyroid could cause even more stress to my body. I know of the medications that treat the growth, but can they wipe out the growth or just shrink it to a certain point? We also talked about possible use of hydrocort if test show again low cort and he will be treating with Armour once and if the cort needs addressing. I really want to treat this the right way so I wil take it slow and cover all bases with doc.

I'm not up to speed on pituitary meds, but some may be able to get rid of tumors.
Why is your doc waiting on cortisol testing? Ask for 4x saliva test if you haven't done it yet.
Pregnenolone and Siberian Ginseng can help support adrenals. Ask you doc about them.

I see him again the 1st wk in Dec. and will discuss what the pituitary meds can do and I suspect he will be ready to move forward on the cortisol and thyroid since new bloodwork will be ready.

Revenge and being vendictive are very self destructive weapons.
Remember my freind what comes around goes around.
Continue on that pathway it will come back to haunt you I have seen in many patients and clients. I am truly sorry for what you are going through and I could only imagine what it could be like. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Just choose the proper pathway not the destructive one.
