Loss of appetite PLEASE HELP!
I finished treatment for stage 2A TNBC in January. The immunotherapy triggered secondary adrenal insufficiency so I am on hydrocortisone for the rest of my life… On 28th of February I had double mastectomy with reconstruction and the fabulous news was I had pCr so no other treatment required.
I had no appetite issues during chemo or fallowing surgery.
In May I begun loosing my appetite and by middle June it was totally gone. I am doing huge efforts to eat every day to maintain my body weight and lost just 3kg/7lbs in 4 months but it`s a constant struggle. I was never aware food was such a pleasure and an important part of being well… After eating I am slightly nauseated but never vomited. I have huge anxiety and a depression creeping up because of it. I am constantly asking myself if I could eat…and I never can… I can`t eat healthy because I`m looking for high caloric intake.
Next week I have the follow up PET CT and of course I am so scared, so anxious…thinking something went wrong.
I did all blood analysis, nothing wrong appears. Gastro, nothing…
Please, please help me! Anybody felt this way?
