Gigantism and life without a pituitary gland

Hi - my name is Andy and I suffered from gigantism as a child. This was caused by a pituitary gland tumour that secreted excess Growth Hormone. The entire gland and tumour were removed when I was just 11 years old.

So this website journals my experience of living with gigantism as well recovering and adjusting to life without the master gland of the endocrine system, the pituitary gland.

Thanks for visiting the site - I hope you find it useful. Let me know if I can help in anyway or how I can improve the site.

All the best,
