There is something which doubt me: Is there any chances that a gerund goes after "although"?
My friend has just found two examples in "Oxford grammar finder":
_ Despite expecting the news, I was greatly shocked by it.
- Although expecting the news, I was greatly shocked by it.
I thought I had never come up with any info like the second sample. Could anyone help?
"Although could go with a gerund if it were part of a complete clause:

expecting the news is an complete clause?
Meanwhile, in Tdol's example, feeling tired is not a complete clause either
