    I, of course, can't tell you what is 'normal' for you. I will say that I think your body has been through a RIDICULOUS amount of trauma since January and is likely going to be non-typical in weight...

  19. Re: Question about the ghrelin hormone after surgery

    My understanding is a bit different.
