Ellen determines she has the symptoms of Cushing's Disease and has surgery to remove a prolactinoma: "Ellen decided that she needed to apply the skills she used at work to become the manager of her own health. 'I took a project management approach. I started setting goals and objectives and making a timeline for myself... It was like running my own business,' she said. 'I ordered copies of my medical records, and poured over every lab result and consultation note, making a list of questions and terms I wasn't familiar with. Then I started researching online.'"
A great example of what a smart patient can do with today's resources !
