GIST survivor

I underwent a subtotal gastrectomy in May 2012 for a 5,5cm GIST in my stomach.  The diagnosis was T3 N0 M0.  Low mitotic rate.  I lost 11kgs and have been able to get only 3kgs back in 4 years.  I am anemic and have to get my iron intravenously as no oral  iron supplement works for me.  I get a vit B12 shot every month and take vit d supplements monthly too as I have osteopenia.
