Anyone has any recommendation on keeping weigh off while on dexamethasone?
29 Nov 2012
I was on dex or decadron for quite awhile during my chemo. Unfortunately, no matter what I tried, the weight still piled on. On a positive note, though, after I was taken off of the steroids, it took about 3 months to drop 45 pounds. Talk to your doctor. He might have some suggestions. The extra pounds just give your family and friends a little more to love!!
