My husband finished chem/rads for IVa BOT at the end of December (surgery not possible). The last 2 days his neck has been swelling, his upper shoulders hurt and he feels like there is fluid in his neck where the tumor was. He hasn't had his follow-up CT yet so we don't know whether or not he's NED. It sounds to my perhaps like lymphedema, but from what I read that happens more often if there is surgery involved. Has anyone experienced this side effect and how was it treated? We don't go back to docs until March 14th.......again, dear friends, thanks for any insight......
