I have only had 2 infusions, but no weight gain yet. I also am still having diarrhea so who knows how long I will be on it.
Ginger- I am like you... work out 6 days a week, LOTS of cardio and weights. Usually spend about 2 hours there a day, even when I feel exhausted I drag myself there and I end up always feeling a lot better when I am done. Sometimes I have to jump off the machine to go have diarrhea, but oh well. Also I have noticed I have less diarrhea AFTER I work out everyday... making most of my diarrhea in the morning and early afternoon...
Yesterday and today the gym was closed for "annual somethingerother" and I have been left to my lame workout DVDs!
