I think that I have perplexed the medical community because with all these well documented, lab verified things going on I have both gained and retained my weight. I have extensive GI problems and they rebuilt my esophageal sphinkter?? (spelling??) at Walter Reed in 1992. The surgery was to prevent esophageal cancer because the sphinkter just stopped working. This was the aftermath of being violently ill in Iraq/Kuwait in May 1991. A few of us got sick in late Apr/May after being there for 6 months. So...no I have not lost weight but I wouldn't "judge a body by it's cover". Has your husband been to a GI (Gastro Intestinal) doctor??
