I wonder if anyone can advise. My husband, dx July 2003 stage 111 rectal cancer, 11 out of 18 lymph nodes involved. Resection, chemo/radiotherapy, NED late July of this year. He lost a total of 40 lbs during surgery and treatment but regained 20 quite quickly and is eating very well now. However, he cannot seem to put on any more weight and would love a few more pounds. He does have several bowel movements a day (no colostomy was needed) and I am wondering if this could affect weight gain. He definitely takes in more calories than he puts out in terms of exercise...doesn't really do any!!
