Patients Lung cancer
Topic of the discussion

My husband went through surgery late last year with success, for now all his tests are coming back clean and with good results and he seems to possibly be in remission! But since he got out of the hospital and now he's put on a lot of weight!
He's already stressed and anxious about the cancer coming back and this on top of it is really just bringing him down. None of his clothes fit anymore. The thing we can't understand is that we eat well and watch portion size, so from what he's been eating it can't be that! He's reduced his salt intake and has completely cut out refined sugar, and his last blood test came back fine. He just can't get rid of this weight.
Have any of you been through this? What could be causing it?? If anyone has an idea on this, my ears are open!

@lori49 Hello lori49, thank you for starting this discussion. I'm sorry to hear about your husband! Hopefully you can both talk to his doctor about this. In the meantime, let me tag some members who may know something about this.
Hello everyone, have you experienced weight gain after lung cancer treatment? Do you know what could cause it or do you have any advice?

Hi. I gained weight at first. I am really not sure why but I think it is because the meds and chemo gave me my appetite back. But before I was diagnosed I had lost almost 30 lbs in a month.

@lori49 Hi Lori, I'm sorry you're husband's going through that, he should be feeling good having fought off his cancer! Maybe like Jeanie said, he's getting his appetite back? Is he taking any medicines or supplements or anything right now?

THC fixes the appetite problem. Edibles or smokables will do it. guaranteed
