I was diagnosed in 1987, 2 resections 1993 & 1994, 8 weeks on TPN at home in 1992.  Was severely underweight for years (barely 100 lbs and 5'4" tall) now I just went thru menopause and have gained almost 40 lbs. Any suggestions??

140 isn't that bad for 5"4" What is your bone structure like, muscle mass, etc. My guess is that you are feeling better...try staying with healthy foods and exercising, and then throwing out the scale!

Wow! you poor thing, you've REALLY been thru the ringer~ sorry to hear you've had so many issues in such a short time. I know i am not obese, but I am used to being thin, and feel terribly overweight.  I am wearing a size 6 and have been a 0 for many years.

I should be happy I have not been hospitalized for 10 years! and was admited 16 times in one year when I was really having a bad time.  Thanks for your reply.
