Hi Vijayan, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Since it is a Non Functioning or Benign Tumor there is nothing to be concerned about. You should be getting Radiotherapy done as directed by your Doctor and go for regular follow up as Observation, surgery and medications are the main treatments for pituitary tumors.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

welcome to healthcaremagic
since you are adviced for radiotherapy there is no alternaive therapy and treatment for your condition. This will be effective as per your result so please continue with advice with your doctor. After radiotherapy please continously follow up in regular interval and continue medications.
take care

Dear Vijayan,
Since you have already been operated for the adenoma and from your description it seems non functioning, it is better to follow your treating doctors advice and undergo radio-therapy if required, as he is the best judge of your condition. In the meanwhile continue the medications and regular follow-ups.
Be rest assured, things would be fine!! Take care and wish you good health!!!
