Hi everyone, I have been meaning to put an update in this group. My Shmee has acromegaly and we will be traveling to the Animal Medical Center in NYC August 27th to have the pituitary gland removal surgery. I found out that AMC has donor funds that will be covering the surgery (normally $16,000 - $20,000), so as scared as I am, I could not pass it up. We will be driving through the night Sunday the 26th from Cleveland. I am active in the Lantus forum, and this is my latest thread. If you are interested you can go back and read my last few threads where I talk about it more. After I talked to Dr. McCue at AMC for about an hour over the phone, I asked him questions via email as well. I am attaching those in case anyone is interested.
