I developed Addison's Disease in 2001. I have to take steroid replacements the rest of my life. Prior to diagnosis, I was a physical therapist, played softball and field hockey, coached my kids sports teams.
After diagnosis I needed a bilateral hip replacements, right knee replacement and a left reverse shoulder replacement. All were done by Rothman Doctors. I am now able to walk over a mile and have full range of motion of all my new joints. Addison's took away my life as I knew it and Rothman gave me some of it back.
