My dad just had radio surgery for a recurrent leison of a LC metastisis in his brain. Drs. put him on dexamethazone which they are weaning him off now. He also started Tarceva. He feels ok except or the fact that his ankles and feet are extremely swollen (3x their normal size!) He is taking a water pill on and off , but they make him feel dizzy. He puts his feet up often during the day... the swelling is really not going down. Could it be his meds? Any with this reaction after radio surgery? Tarceva? Dexamethazone? Thanks for your help.
