Weight Loss
Feb 10, 2001

My question is that I have had 2 brain surgeries last year, last one was October. I went from 220 lbs. all the way down to 186. I have a tremendous appetite, yet will not gain any weight at all. The only medicine I have been on is Dilantin for possible seizures. Now I am off. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Response from Dr. Fisher

I would need even more detail: what is the status of your HIV infection, why was the Dilantin stopped, what were the surgeries for, what other meds are you on, etc, etc. Otherwise I can't tell what is going on.
