it sounds like you are battling prostate cancer currently.
and the cancer has come back
and you are on lupron therapy which takes away testosterone out of your body to help freeze the prostate cancer in your body.
taking away testosterone can slow down your metabolism and can cause you to gain weight.
it can be hard to limit your diet and exercise at your age to keep from gaining weight.
have you talked to your doctor about supervised exercise therapy or physical therapy to try to exercise and build muscle?
