I finished my chemo (CHOP) at the end of Jan. 2002 and my radiation at the end of March 2002 for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in my chest. I was given a large amount of seriods (Predisone) with my treatment. I have gained 30 pounds. I was already 20 pounds over weight. So, I am carrying around a lot of extra weight. No matte what I do I can't get rid of it. While I was undergoing treatment I sat around for over six months. I was just so tired. I started back to work and I thought some of it would drop off but it hasn't. I still just crave carbs and sweets.
I know this should be the least of my concerns. BUT being over weight can cause other problems. I try to exercise but I am so tired after working all day and doing the mom thing. Is anyone else going through this?
