Oral Cancer: the most effective weight loss program ever.
Hang in there EZJim. Even just rereading this thread, you had dropped from 175 lbs down to 164 lbs in April 2010. Now two years later you are only 130. Please take care of yourself my friend.

I was too amused by the mid thread diversion of "who cares why I got cancer? Well, I do!" HPV dialogue to post my weight stats back in 2010 when this thread started. so here goes:
At the start of treatment, at 5 foot eleven inches, I was 177 lbs but most of that was lean muscle mass. I dropped down to about 130 during TX but since I had been 126 lbs during my fastest marathon days, that was withing my acceptable parameters . After TX, Shot quickly back up to 142 since I could swallow and eat. Then the recurrence, where after 12 days in the hospital I was a pathetic 119 lbs - ironically, that was after I had a PEG for the first time. Very slow recovery with feeding tube instead of first time just eating.
Now back up to 142 for a year as a result of hitting the gym 4 times a week for weights & Yoga. (they discontinued the Pilates classes - boo).
