I had my colon cancer operated on 25th of November, 2021. This is a permanent colostomy. Post surgery, I am not under any treatment. Now managing the pouch and recovering. I am still weak.
I was about 72 kg at the beginning of 2021, however, I started losing weight before the surgery was done, I was 64 kg.
Post surgery, there was an increase in my body weight, about 3 kg, but it seems it stopped now. Can anyone here advise if there would be a timeline I need to wait to see myself getting back to previous weight? I do not want to be overweight for sure, but the doctor has asked to keep an eye on the weight loss...
Any input is appreciated. Since I am very new to this 'new normal', any discomfort scares me a lot.
Thank you for your support and stay healthy.
