In brief: Hormone imbalance

The pituitary is a gland that controls many of the hormones of the body.
There can be serious imbalance of many of the body functions if the pituitary is damaged or removed. Hormone replacement therapy is necessary, and careful monitoring of hormone levels is necessary. However, this has now become routine and easy to monitor. A good endocrine specialist can easily develop a plan of management.

In brief: Healthy life

After tumor is removed you can be discharged within a few days.
Sometimes there is leakage of brain fluid for some time which eventually decreases and stops.You have to watch for infection of brain fluid.
