I have been in RT for the past several weeks. Prior to da Vinci last September I weighed a chunky (for me) 157 lbs. After going on a healthy food diet, and excercise I dropped to around 147. Bear in mind I used to eat anything that was not nailed down or did not move for five minutes. My wife even says she cannot believe how my eating/excercise habits have changed. I have been fluctuating between 142.5 and 145 to 146 since starting RT. This morning it was 141.5. I have not weighed in at that since I was young. I mentioned the 142.5 to the rad. onc. last week. He said, "let us worry about your weight." No further explanation.
Has anyone else had a weight loss issue during RT?
Kind of messed up the poll should have had another choice of more than 5 lbs. Was not sure how to correct it.
