Have had rather massive weight loss, in the area of near-30 lbs. (2 1/2 stone, as they say in UK), after bout with chemo and radiation therapy, six weeks ending last April. My oncologist just has had me in for a follow-up petCT scan, the results of which apparently I have to wait about a couple of weeks for. My doctor's assistant says the wait it because my doctor has to consult with others so to be finally conclusive about the results. I am more than anxious about this whole thing, but I worry more about great weight loss than anything else. Was this caused by the cancer OR by the treatments, or both??
