Hello and welcome to HCM
You have mentioned that you have had partial thyroidectomy for goitre which turned out to be Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
After the surgery you should get your thyroid function tests regularly to rule out any abnormality of thyroid hormones.
Regarding the pituitary tumor, it is important to know if there are any symptoms associated with the pituitary tumor. If there are symptoms surgical removal needs to be done. For this you will have to refer a neurologist.
Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive degenerative disorder in which there is destruction of myelin. In primary progrssive MS the disease process is relapsing and remitting. During this stage certain medications help eg Interferons, polypeptites which protect the myelin and immunosupprants which prevent the destruction of myelin. These drugs only halt the progression but do not cure the disease.
Lastly, about kidney stones you need to get it removed soon as it is causing obstruction. Before that get your urine examination and X-ray of the KUB region.

Thanks and take care
