I am putting it very bluntly that it is difficult to make your weight increase by any means. kidney disease disease has to improve to for you to gain weight. there is no plastic stomach or any other kind of things to make you gain weight. As you have multiple cancer- check for any recurrence of disease, so that if treated properly, you may gain weight.
