Am I the only person that has gained weight during chemotherapy? I was diagnosed with third stage ovarian cancer while I was attending Culinary College. I lost weight one month and gained it during the two weeks that I could hold my head up. I would be cooking all night long because if I was going to die I sure as hell wasn't going to leave a skinny corpse. After chemo I went into remission and I think that the weight gain might have helped me survive. But, now I am afraid of going to my exam on wed. I went from a size 10 to a 16 and I think that I put about five more pounds on since my last visit. I have a positive outlook but If its back I don't know what I am going to do. I take care of a mentally challenged older sister and if I die she won't have anyone.
Anyone else gain weight from chemo?
