hi for this last week i have been sick with a really bad case of strep throat, with a sinus infection thats just as bad. but my problem is that i can barely eat and i can barely sit up for more than ten minutes. the doctors are tryng their best to get me better but its taking a tole on my muscles. the day before i was sick i was weighing 230 at the end of my bulk stage, but now im 210 but i look the same just smaller. any help? will my muscle come back as fast as i lost it? or am i screwed out of 20 pounds?

I believe the 20 pounds you lost is pretty much all due to water retention that was lost, and food that was normally still in your system. Very little of that was muscle. If you keep your diet, you shouldn't lose too much of what you gained. Just take it easy. Eat well. It'll take a little while to work your way back up, but it's nothing too serious.
