      Yes, I was petite to begin with, and I lost 25lbs, dropping to 94ibs. I had oral cancer, which made it painful to eat. I gained back enough to now maintain a normal weight. I can eat everything I want as long as I exercise.

      First treatment for head and neck/throat cancer I lost about 20% of body weight even with a feeding tube. Gained some of it back in 2 years just in time to lose more with 2nd go at metastatic throat cancer. No tube this time. All thanks to chemo. What has hit me the hardest is the amount of muscle mass and strength that I have lost and isn't coming back. Aging is part of it but the lack to strength has really impacted my normal daily life.
