Hi friend

Welcome to Health Care Magic

Sorry to see some new problems in a situation like this.
I am an Internist (+Cardiologist!) - Any new finding in your setting must be taken as directly related to the primary event - and appropriately investigated.
Pituitary may overact to compensate losses - but should not bulge. And in association with frontal sclerosis, it is a secondary deposit - unless proved otherwise.

You must see your ONCOLOGIST as soon as possible - for favour of further assessment and assistance

Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Take care
Good luck
