Done chemo for lymphoma, difficulty in losing weight. What should be done?

I had 6 mos. chemo in 2010 for lymphoma . I am over weight & my Dr. wants me to lose weight.because cancer is related to weight gain . I don t eat much on a daily basis, however, it seems like nothing will move the scale. I think the drug predinsome, which was part of the chemo, really stopped my body from losing weight. I am 67 y/o/

Hi, first of all , prednisolone is not responsible for your present situation. What I can suggest is, stop oily food, eat lot of vegetables, stop red meat. You should climb the stairs and not to use the lift. Remove ice cream, colas, fruit juices from your diet chart. Cycling is the best exercise. Most important to keep patience. Take care
