In March of 2011 I have been diagnosed with AML. In July I have completed all of my chemo treatments and also had 3 spinal chemos. I have 1 more to complete at the end of this month. I received a lot of streroids during my illness and had gained 40 lbs. Also I am very "swollen" in my appearance such as my face and my hands. My oncologist stated that chemo also screwed my metabolism. I have been always active and fit. My present apperance make me very despressed and sad. I avoid going places and do not want to run into anyone I know. Nothing in my closet fits me and my friends helped me with some clothes for the summer. From size 8-10 I became XL....I do not work as yet but I am planning to return to work in October. Does any one have any advice on diet? exercise? Does any one had experienced the same problem? My doctor keeps saying "it will go away". I feel discouraged.
