Hello there, Pituitary apoplexy is a condition in which the pituitary tumor spontaneously hemorrhages (bleeds). Most patients have significant visual improvement after surgery;.... however, a majority will have permanent hormone deficiencies due to pituitary injury. You may require hormone replacement therapy for life...Consult Endocrinologist regarding hormonal replacement therapy...
