so last oct i broke my foot, which put a real cramp in my cooking. then over thanksgiving, norovirus swept through the house. i spent a whole day with my gs holding a bowl in front of him as he vomited every 20 minutes. so i caught that, of course. then two and a half weeks ago, i got the flu. i could hardly get out of bed for 2 weeks. i went to an urgent care and was given an iv of fluids. they weighed me and i was 90 lbs, at 5'9.
so i still feel awful and am trying to gain some weight. i bought some odwalla protein drinks and force myself to eat. i'm too weak still to cook, so i just buy the healthiest frozen stuff, plus eat crackers and popcorn. i have no appetite. i have chills, so i think my iron is low, but iron upsets my stomach.
any advice on improving appetite? how long does it take for weight gain to help? do i need another doc visit? i'm so worn out i have no energy.
