Anyone have an experience with long distance running and triathlons with an adrenal insufficiency?

I was a long distance runner (13 marathons) and triathlete (IM Louisville) until a fractured femoral head sidelined me in April of this year. Several other physical issues popped up between April and July, and an MRI in July showed I had a 3-4 cm tumor sitting on my pituitary gland. I had surgery to remove the tumor in August, and after a lengthy recovery period, I've finally been cleared to exercise again.The surgery has left me with a permanent adrenal insufficiency. I know long distance running and triathlon is considered 'stressful' and will mean I need to take stress doses of my medication; but I'm looking for some real world experiences so I know what to expect.

If anyone has any experience with adrenal insufficiency and long duration exercise, please share your experience. Thanks.

The whole bottoms of my feet hurt these days. Been running for a number of years now and this is a first. Do you have any tips?
