Yeah, I didn't take steroids either. Two of the meds had weight gain as a possible side effect. I didn't eat 'diet' food during chemo- but didn't really get too crazy, other than eating three times a day which isn't my norm. I live alone, so no need to cook for anybody. Now, I'm just hoping to get rid of this tonnage. :/

I thought I'd get 'skinny chemo'- I got the fat stuff ! But at least I'm alive to whine about it !!

congrats to you - I lost 60 pounds to go to transplant and another 40 during the transplant...but that 40 has come back and I really need to lose 25 of it - I wasnt on immune suppressants or steroids, so I didn't gain weight during the process...but I had 7 months of mouth sores that prevented me from eating...once those were gone and food started to taste good, I began eating more than I should have and not exercising enough...I was LIVING LIFE LARGE and so glad to be doing it...now I'm trying (albeit, not too hard) to get back to a routine of eating right and exercising - thanks for your comments

Hi emoticon

I'm glad to hear you're doing well! I'm an AML (sub-type M-3) survivor. I gained 40 pounds on chemo, and am trying to lose that. I'm also a newbie here, so glad to meet you!
