how many of you were told that using Oxycontin and Oxycontin and oxycodone would give you low Testosterone? Are you aware that weight gain is a side affect of low Testosterone? So if you are trying to lose weight and can not, get your Testosterone levels checked!

@JamseChase, I weighed 140 pounds when I got injured…20 years later I’m trying to lose my couch potato life style weight 😂🤣. I used to eat anything I wanted and never see a change of weight! But my metabolism has slowed down with me!🧐. I am currently walking the dog 4 times a day and clocking an average of two miles a day.
Thanks for the hug! One coming back at you!

I am not really concerned with weight as long as I feel good.
I think my weight loss is caused by this fibrosis rock hard growth that is squeezing my guts. It's like the rubber bands around the stomach surgery so you can't eat very much. This thing grew to collapse left eartha. And a few other symptoms until I could figure a proper diet for me. Now it is slowly shrinking. I have a CT contrasted every 4 months. So far so good. But I am skinny as a rail. I only know one person that weighs less than me and she is 5 foot 2 at 110 pounds. You should see me at the I can still bench press 200+ pounds. All that whitilling gave me that.
But I am back to not sleeping again.

If it's not one thing it's everything else....huh


I find if I wear enough jackets and sweaters I don't look that

Nevertold that and took those for 10+ years. Cut off cold years ago.

Do you think if I lowered my Testosterone that I could gain some weight? I'm 5'10" and 120 pounds. Might be worth a try...huh

With your condition, you may have vitamin deficiency. After all the laughs from remains a question for your Doctor, but at your weight im sure hes not "too" concerned. Doctors love patients your height and weight. Im assuming weight loss wasnt "overnight" meaning it happened over a long enough time. B12 makes me eat more than a horse but only by mouth. As we age, we have/lose it easily. Even though mine is within normal range, ive explained to docs that i dont feel as well as i did when it was higher. Normal range is one size fits all...NO ONE LIVING HAS AN EQUAL ONE SIZE so why they use it.
