I have Gigantism and I had Brain Surgery two days ago to remove my Pituitary Gland AMA!
My Story: I have been diagnosed with Gigantism and can't stop growing. My pituitary gland had grown 4 times normal size this has caused my heart to becoming weak and over sized. The procedure to fix this involves going in through the nose to the center of the brain and removing the pituitary gland. I will be on hormone replacement for the rest of my life. The procedure was done at Texas Tech University Medical Center in Lubbock TX.
My Totally Awesome Dad has helped me set up this AMA and has written all of this text while I'm sleeping (including the totally awesome dad part)(dad is /u/mobeatie )
When I was in surgery my dad ask /r/jokes for some humor to make the day go better http://www.reddit.com/r/Jokes/comments/1qjhcg/im_in_the_or_waiting_room_waiting_on_my_daughters/
My Proof: I (dad) have spoken with the mods and the doctors and am working on a way to prove this without breaking privacy and HIPAA

I (dad) wanted to go ahead and get this started so maybe we can have some questions for when she wakes up.
Update 1: She is waking up and beginning to move around. We will start answering questions a little later so keep submitting them.
**Update: * * doing medical stuff be back soon
Sorry for double posting (her potato is acting up)
