Yesterday I met my doctor before chemo #1 and he talked about things to expect including how some people gain weight during chemo treatment. He said he knew of no metabolic changes directly caused by chemo, however the lowered blood count / energy level, causing a sedentary lifestlye, might be a reason for weight gain.
Do you have any ideas or thoughts - did you gain or lose during chemo? Any suggestions as to one or the other? I can see having cravings especially if I'm feeling down, wanting sweets to cheer me up, then not getting much exercise if I'm so tired.
So far my taste hasn't been affected; even had my beloved java this morning! Thanks,
