Will be going in December.

Yes, would be exceptional if most patients would require not much more than one or two short-term treatments with RU486.

Is your endocrinologist continuing testing for cortisol? At a minimum, every two to three months you should have a 24-hr UFC and a late night salivary cortisol (done on the same night that you are doing the UFC), just to see where you're at and to see if a Cushing's condition might be devceloping.

Also, if your endo is convinced that it is a pseudo cushing's situation (i.e., hypercortisolism due to a psychological disorder) has he considered applying for a compassionate use waiver from the FDA through the Feminist Majority? I have all of the contact info if you think that he / she might be convinced to give that therapy a try....

P.S. I take it that an adrenal gland tumor has definitely been ruled out in your case?

> Because your situation is a little uncertain, as to whether there may be a physical cause for your hypercortisolism, I think it's great that you will get a really thorough work-up at NIH. My endocrinologist made some inquiries about my doing the same, but I didn't qualify, as everything (physical and psychological) pointed towards PTSD and trauma from csa. Will you be going soon?
