I had successful chemo ending last year in february. I am no longer on any followup meds. But, I did have to take steroids for 12 months and gained about 20lbs. I am getting periods again finally. But I have wieght in places I have never had weight before, my ribs, stomach back, under my arms. I was very athletic pre cancer and still am, I run about 2 miles a day and do at least 40 mins of cardio a day. Not a pound off despite my efforts. I am 46 years old.
does anyone know anything about what is going on? Do steroids do permanent damage to your metabolism? Any suggestions? I am worried more about my health, keeping weight off is recommended in preventing recurrance.
