From this study (1 week ago):
Uncontrollable weight gain since hirnia/appendix surgery Nov 7 2013 & use of breathing drugs. Most of the weight gain is sound middle stomach & hips. I've never had a stomach & never weighed this much in my whole life & diet & exercise are barely keeping where I'm at.
From this study (8 months ago):
While on meds I am totally normal, nobody notices my PD. When off I become a very impaired person with a hunched gait, shuffling steps, very slow for every movement, droping thigs, etc.
From this study (9 months ago):
Cant add moe drugs, but take Propranolol to slow heart beat down, Calceos to prevent brittle bones and same for Alendronic Acid.
I have put on half a stone in a week since I started Furosemide, but my stomach has not increased in diameter, so I assume I am not carrying anymore fluid
