Angry I gained 9 pounds!!!

I gained 9 pounds since like thursday and I don't know how. granted, I've been doing a little stress eating since my diagnosis of leukemia but not 9 pounds worth. I never gained that much in a week when I was eating the most and the worst in my past life. It seems to be around the middle and in my face. I took an extra diuretic at dinner-I'm thinking it's water, but holy cow! My vancomycin has been extended a week-yippee!

I am so frustrated! MY PCP wants me to see a vascular surgeon now because of the blood clots I keep getting in my legs. All I need is another doctor!

All I do is go to work, come home, putz on the computer for a little and go to bed. I'm so tired all the time. It was everything I could do to drag my *** to work today but I had to. I managed a short walk this afternoon. My gym membership is going to waste-I just don't have any energy. I just feel like crying all the time. I'm thinking I should see a counselor, but I go to enough doctors as it is. Yesterday, 1 doctor himself actually called-with the good news about the vanco and 2 others' nurses called to see how I'm doing.

I hate to keep *****ing, but I feel like I'm at the bottom and can't see my way to the top. And griping to people I don't actually see and who don't have to read what I write spares the people I do see and can walk away when they see me coming which would hurt my feelings.

thanks for listening, friends.

There's a big possibility it is water retention. I can gain about 10lbs in water weight.

Terry, You are probably holding water. Listen, right now relax just a bit on your weight loss. Maintain, this is not the time to worry about a gym membership going to waste. Baby yourself. Make certain you keep your nutrition up, and rest because that is good for your immune system. {{{{{Hugs}}}}}

Ditto to Jiffy!!

Take care of yourself, don't beat yourself up with that scale...take your meds, go to your drs, eat well, rest...take care of the one person that knows every single detail of what you are going through, will be there with you through all the tests and medications, that needs your love and respect even more now then ever before....YOU!

We'll be here for when you need to ***** and complain...when you need an ear or a distraction in someone else's difficulty or celebration...dance with you when that 9 lbs comes back off because of the lessening edema and things start turning around...

Hang in there.

A counselor might not be a bad idea. I wish I could have talked my DH into one when he was so injured and off work for 14 months. These things take a toll, a counselor can help you fight through it. A lot of the emotions are natural, but it helps to have someone to guide you through it.

Could it be water weight from some of your medication?

I just gained around 6 pounds from surgery due to water retention. I'm just going to wait it out and not worry about the weight. I hear it can take a couple weeks for my fluid levels to regulate. Good luck!
