I finished the standard chemo/rad on October 6, 2009. I have started experiencing swollen ankles on a daily basis since the end of April - six months post treatment. I was staged IIIB with left lymph node involvement. My oncologist said it is due to damage from either the chemo or the radiation. I am currently NED.
I have an appointment to go to a lymphadema clinic next week. I was surprised to find out that I have to have a prescription for #30 compression socks. I'm sure they will get me outfitted next week.
Anyway - any tips on this from anyone????
