Need to gain weight

Since September 2018 till now I have lost about 10kg. My eating habits have not changed or my diet. Have been for blood tests, CT scans, Chest X-Rays, colonoscopy and gastroscopy and Doc's can find nothing wrong. My breast cancer has been in remission for 7 years now - had a double mastectomy in 2010. I am at my wits end as I cannot get over 45kg. I used to weigh 58kg. I am 58 years of age and I find this very disturbing that no Doctor is able to tell me what the problem is.
