Diagnosed in October 2001 with Stage III adenocarcinoma stemming from a colon cancer, I am seven months past chemo and 100 lbs heavier! I am so depressed about it that I really can't focus on living each day as the gift that it truly is. I feel like a freak! I have gone from a size 12 to size 22 in 10 months! What is up with that? Of course, the doctors have very little sympathy for my concerns. I am not looking for sympathy however, but to know that maybe this is a part of the whole treatment and healing process. I spend all day every day depressed about the weight. Having cancer is not bad enough! Anyone out there in the same boat?
