I started out when I found out I had this cancer at 243 lbs. and changed my diet and lost 27 lbs. before I started chemoradiation treatments. So the doctor got on me and told me to get off all diets and gain the weight back. I only gained 2 lbs. back before the treatments strarted and have lost another 1 1/2 lbs. since 2 1/2 weeks ago. They want me to pack on some pounds because the surgery is going to make me lose maybe another 50 lbs. and right now I can't afford to lose that much. I also lost a half inch in height since this all started I was at 6 foot. So I'm eating everything I want and can eat that might put the weight back on. I don't think my digetive system is working right though and thats why I'm not gaining. I eat all the time fatting foods too. My wife took two years at UT in Arlington for dietition so thats a big help for me. She was in charge of all the diets at the Arlington Memoral Hospital for 14 years. So she knows what to feed me to make me gain some weight.
