Dieting with Obstacles - Recent Metastatic Breast Cancer Diagnosis

03-07-2014, 01:09 PM
Hi all, so happy to have found this forum, I'm excited to jump on the wagon and begin losing some excess weight in order help me get back on track.
I was recently diagnosed with MBC after my arm broke in Jan 2014.
Fast forward to today, March 7, 2014 and I am on the mend after extensive surgery to repair by plating, screwing and cementing my arm together.
Currently in a Herceptin infusion regimen and after climbing on the scale 10-15 times in the last couple of months it is evident that I need to drop some excess weight.

So here I go. I am keeping a food diary, cutting unnecessary carbs and empty calories and making a concerted effort to eat lots more veg, fruit and whole grains.

Are you going to have radiation or chemo ?
