Hello, I had my last Chemo treatment July 17th. I had ovarian cancer stage 3c. It had spread to my liver,stomach,spleen, herniated my colon you name it was there. Now in September I started gaining weight and continue to gain. I've gained 26lbs. The Dr says I need to eat less and excercise more. He says the chemo a lot of times slows your metabolism down and there isn't anything one can do. I am still tired, have neuropathy really bad, and my fibromyalgia is worse since the chemo. Any advice? Has anyone else gained like this and what stopped it. Also I am taking L-glutamine and Bcomlex for the neuropathy but it isn't helping alot. Any other suggestions? Thyroid tests are normal?? Baffled but not defeated.
