Rebecca tells The Doctors during her late teens she began to undergo extreme body changes, and the changes mysteriously continued into her adult life, and she felt she began to grow "uglier."
She says her nose, jaw and chin continued to grow. Her feet grew from size 8 to size 10 and she says she barely recognized herself. Doctors incorrectly attributed the changes to a slew of health issues, until one doctor finally discovered she had a tumor on her pituitary gland causing your body to secrete way too much growth hormone.
"I should have been devasted," she says of her diagnosis. "But after 9 years of being misdiagnosed for so long, I was almost relieved to finally know what as going on with my body."
After learning about the tumor, she had it removed and says in just 24 hours her hormones returned to normal levels and she tells us she no longer needs to take her medications.
Since having surgery, Rebecca tells us her body has begun to morph back and areas like her nose and chin have shrunk. "It feels good to be normal again," she says.
The Doctors say Rebecca's story highlights the importance of being your own health advocate and not stopping the search for the answers to your health questions.
