Sooo.. I'm a Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor (since Sept. 6, 2006). I used a crapload of meds during my chemo and I also have poly-cystic ovarian syndrome. During chemo, I gained almost 40lbs.. which is insane because I could barely eat the entire time. Even worse, I haven't been able to lose a single pound since the end of my treatments no matter how much I exercise. Fyi.. I was on the Nuvaring and used Lupron shots during chemo.

Does anyone have any experience with weight gain during chemo and have any suggestions?? It's just so miserable to still not feel like myself so many months after I finished my treatments.
