I am asking anyone who has had experience with prostate cancer, and my cancer is stage IV and later, How you managed cachexia or muscle wasting. I went from a 150 pound man in pretty good shape to a 115 pound weakling with little strength at all. What kind of foods should i eat and when?
How do i keep the appetite going so i will be motivated to actually eat? Are there any supplements that will stimulate my main body to go into an anabolic state and not stimulate the cancer at the same time? Who overcame this problem and what did you do and why?

Are you healthy now?

I suggest you start by reading the stickies. Gaining muscle in your position comes down to eating a calorie surplus and lifting with progressive overload.
