Default help needed

I'm sorry I haven't been around much and now I'm looking for help but I got a letter from my Obgyn today reminding me that I did not make my post op appointment (lap in May). I did but had to cancel and I was putting it on the long finger. Anyway he said that my prolactin level was elevated and he wants me to get another test and make an appointment for 3 weeks. I know Honeybun had this problem and it was rectified and some else recently had this too (forgive me forgetting the person). Basically I'm looking for links to a good site that can explain about prolactin levels, I can't seem to find a good one and all I can see is posts were pituitary tumors are mentioned and I'm freaking out a little. I put a call thru to my doc but I can't speak to him until tomorrow lunchtime.

Any help would be appreciated.

This is from my RE's Glossary..
"Prolactin: Pituitary hormone that regulates breast milk production. When prolactin levels are elevated, ovulatory dysfunction may result. Frequently caused by small benign pituitary tumor (prolactinoma). Successfully treated with oral medicines, such as bromocriptine. "

Apparently the tumors they mention are benign. Try not to freak out.
