I've been trying to find information on weight gain after surgery using Google . Not too much, specific to Prostate cancer.
I've got two theories.
One is basically what Andrew is saying, that the burn rate has slowed. One thing that I've changed the last two weeks is I've fallen off on my daily walking. That might be slowing the metabolism. So I'm going to try to step that up again and see what happens.
The second is maybe a little FA fetched, but who knows. Maybe it's the 9 lymph nodes removed, causing fluid retention. I feel like the weight gain is around my middle, near where lymph nodes where removed.
Just thinking out loud.
