Some of you might remember me from another thread concerning symtoms I have had since October. I stil have no answer, but see the hemotologist/encologist today to get the results of my bone marrow biopsy and XRays. They found an abnormal protein in my blood - IGG Kappa Monoclonal so that is the reason for the tests.
The thing that scares me is all these XRays. I have read the radiation exposure from XRays is large and can cause cancer. Anyone hear this as well?
Anyway, I have been losing weight and am down 20 lbs since October. I have been eating normal amounts of food again, but am not gaininganythig back. I eat very healthy so that may have something to do with it and I have a high metabolism. I gained some extra weight over the years since very young and never quite got rid of it. Then, in October I had issues with apetite and nausea, in addition to tryin elimination diets, I ended up losing weight and getting very lean - too lean in my opinion.
Since then, I am not avoiding eating - I eat a good bit but 95% great suff, fruit, veggies, whole grains, occassional lean poultry, nuts, seeds, soy, eggs, etc. I have eaten very well most of my life, but have been really watching my diet since October.
I'll even treat myself to pizza once a week or a dessert but still no weight gain and maybe even more weight loss. Where are the calories going? Could I be burning that fast? This is crazy.
