has anybody had nose bleeds ,I had my pituitary gland removed after a tumour was removed in 2018 but i have started to get very bad nose bleeds . i have only in the last few months got on top of my medication, and fell good in my self but the nose bleeds are getting more frequent. I am on BP tablets and monitor my blood pressure i have always been a fit person but i notice that my pulse is low 44/45 when checking ( it's normal is 52/56 ) just wondering if anyone has had the same . LOOKING FOWARD TO SEEING ANY FEEDBACK Regards Gary

Hi Gary
Sorry I can't answer from direct experience but a couple of questions/suggestions.
Firstly, when did you last see your endocrinologist? Typically they lead on your health as they have a better grasp of what's happening rather than the other specialists or your GP. If you haven't got an appointment contact their secretary, explain your concern and ask for a quick consultation, probably by phone at the moment.
Secondly, depending on the BP tablets you may find slower heart rate as a side-effect, for example beta-blockers often have this effect. Are you being monitored by your GP/Practice Nurse for this or is it a cardiologist? Try asking the relevant people for a change if you find this worrying, an alternative medication may remove the rate effect, although I think they don't worry much unless you drop to below about 30 bpm.
Take care
Tim

Hi Gary, again no direct experience of this. Yes, I had nosebleeds after my surgery in 2013 for a little while, but even then nothing too bad just where the nose was healing. I had about 3 follow up appointments with the ENT department to check all was healing well. Since about 2 months after the surgery, never had a nosebleed. So as Tim suggests, best check in with your Endocrinologist for a chat and see what they say.
