Well, after spending most of the day pissed off about not getting results because they were closed on the day they told me to call, I missed a call from them at 5:30 pm. Go figure. They left a voicemail saying my test results were ready to view on my patient files on their website if I wanted. I think it's pretty cool that it's an option. 

I went and checked right away, and the test for Cushing's disease came back negative. That means the pill I took to suppress my cortisol levels definitely worked and they were not elevated at all when they took my blood the next day. 

I'm definitely thankful not to have been diagnosed with Cushing's, but part of me is extremely frustrated that yet again, this wasn't the answer. I'm still waiting to hear from the hospital to schedule the growth hormone test. This is what Dr. C sent me in for in the first place, Cushing's was just a secondary test run by the new Dr to make sure she wasn't missing anything. I'm hoping his hunch was right and I'll have answers soon. Just more hurry up and wait.
