Will I Gain Weight If I Have Radiation Therapy And After That Chemotherapy?

Answer

Women often gain weight after breast cancer treatment, but I'm not aware of any information that would tie the order of the treatments with weight gain. Lower physical activity, changing hormones, and stress are all factors that may contribute to weight gain after breast cancer. The most important thing right now is to get treated and eat as healthy a diet as possible to keep up your strength to fight the cancer. You may be one of the women who doesn't gain weight, and if you do, you can deal with that issue once treatment is over. I hope all of your treatments go well and that you are soon feeling fine.
