My weight stayed fairly steady during the SRT, maybe even gained a pound or two... I had radiation only, no hormones... After SRT, I ended up gainig about 10 lbs... most likely due to inactivity from fatigue and possible side effects from some of the anti-depression meds I was on at the time... I did not exercise much or felt like I wanted to...
All in all, I look back and it did take about a year after SRT to really feel like I became my ol' normal self again... both mentally and physically... Do not get me wring, the last year was not bad... just "flat"... just not my old self...
I am now active again at all my old favorite activities and weight is going back down to where it should be...
