weight gain post chemo
cancer47 posted:
I have gained about 25 lbs post chemo, rads and full hysterectomy. It seems easy to lose 5 lbs and then nothing else happens. Has anyone been succesful at loss and if so how? For lent I gave up eating between meals, except I only allow a piece of fruit or veggies. Please help or I may turn into a carrot!!!

I have gotten a jump start on losing weight! Its called the "a nasty nasty cold" Lost 7 lbs first week. Hoping to feel better soon, I just am not hungry. I know its not the best plan but for now I'll take it. Then it's back to not eating between meals. That helped the most.
