Pituitary adenoma Can't Post

Pituitary adenoma. It's a benign tumour of the pituitary gland which responds well to medication. If undiagnosed it can grow to press on the optic nerve and can cause blindness. I have a treated micro-adenoma and wonder what I should do in my yoga practise. For example would postures which stimulate the pituitary be good or avoided? I also have a beginner in my yoga group with the same condition but her tumour was diagnosed when it had grown to a stage where it was pressing on her optic nerve and causing blurred vision. Does anyone have any advice.
