I have been recently diagnosed with uterine cancer. I come here looking for support, as there are no support groups in this area.
I've not yet started treatment, have an appointment at Dartmouth for a consultation on the 10th. This is the first major illness I have ever had.
I could use some help with this: my weight is extremely low, and they want me to gain to prepare for surgery and perhaps chemo/radiation. I also have anorexia (chronic - I am 65, ill with that from 13 years on). Has anyone had to put on weight before treatment, and if so, how?
I hope I can find and give support here. Thank you.
