I was, like my late father, never a heavy man, but far from it, and I was only about 112 pounds in high school. I gained as I got into my twenties and slowly gained as I got married, but I was still on the slim side.
I was in the hospital for my AVM for 2 months, and for
some reason I lost weight there and when I got out in
late March I remember weighing only a small bit more than
I did in high school and photos show me as almost emaciated
with little arms. Did they starve me in the hospital?
I doubt that, but perhaps the treatment kept me from
keeping my weight up.
When I got out I got my wife's cooking again and quickly gained weight, but I never got to be a very heavy person either. Today I weigh 151 at 5' 8". I am glad not to be overweight in an age when there are so many people that are, but I guess it is because of my ancestors not me.
I am told that many AVM survivors are overweight, but
in this day and age...who isn't?
