From what you have written, I think this is not just macro adenoma, but that macro adenoma has undergone a bleeding too Surgery may be needed He also needs a Hormonal study and hospital stay till his hormones are normal Wishes for him to get well soon

Hello. Sorry to hear this. It seems to me from your query that your father had a pituitary macroadenoma with apoplexy. This means he has a benign non cancerous tumor of his pituitary gland which has bled. He probably also has 3rd nerve paresis which is causing him difficulty in opening his left eye. He should get a hormonal study done since pituitary gland is the master endocrine gland of the body. The usual treatment of pituitary apoplexy is surgery through an endoscope to remove the blood clot and the tumor completely. Please let me know if you any other queries. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
