Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

Yes it will be recommended to take genotropin/somatotropin ( human growth hormone) which is secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. So, if you had surgery of the surgery, then it is recommended to take supplements of the hormone secreted by that gland. Well, ones excised, recurrence is rare.

Hope this helps and answers your question.
