Hi kim,
There is one other possibility. If only one adrenal
gland was removed back in November, then it may
be the remaining gland that is still overproducing hormones
and preventing the hair from coming back. Time to
consider a second surgery or Lupron. Of course you
could run a Tenn. panel to check for elevated hormone levels.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
