Anyone has any recommendation on keeping weigh off while on dexamethasone?
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!!
This is so refreshing to see other MM warriors! This truly gives me so much hope in the journey I’m still adjusting to living with this cancer. My doctor just doubled my dexamethasone. Ugh! But I’m pleased to hear the weight will eventually do away! I’m determined to fight and victory will be mine! Katherine that’s awesome your in remission. Did you do the stem cell transplant? My doctor is suggesting I get one but I’m nervous. Any advise or suggestions?
