    I've never gained weight
    I've never gained weight while taking Chemo, (3 times), in fact it's usually been about 4 weeks after the Chemo sessions stopped that I began to slowly gain my weight back.
    I'm not sure about the effect the Radiation had, since I had Chemo immediately afterwards in February during the BMT procedure and I just now am gaining a substantial amount of weight back, I'm still about 15 pounds under my pre cancer weight.
