Breast Cancer

I have finished with chemo, surgery, radiation. I was stage 4 breast cancer. I went from stage three to 4 in 10 days. I was allergic to some of the chemo meds unfortunately I was put on mega doses of steroids and I have balloned up by 100 lbs. Is there any suggestions on how to get my metabolism going again to drop this weight. I am walking but get short of breath easy. I am so uncomfortable with all this weight. Thank you for your help.

yes the steroids did have a huge effect on the weight gain. According to the doctor the large doses of chemo is what shut my metabolism down.
