Hmmm, I dunno if I fully agree with what your doctor said. What I suggest is that you chat to a Sports Nutritionist and get their input. There are supplements that you can use and although you are what we call a hard gainer and will take longer than most for you to gain weight there is a solution that is not as drastic as what your doc mentioned.

Keep well,
