So close to the end of treatment...noticed yesterday that my husband's ankle looked a bit swollen. Just a few minutes ago, saw that his whole foot is swollen. Had last cisplatin a week ago, 5 more rads to go. Was treated for blood clots in lungs 3 weeks ago and is on Lovanox and has a vena cava filter. This leg has been giving him problems since late March and they say it is his sciatic nerve. Has anyone had swelling because of chemo? Can this wait until tomorrow? When I pointed it out to him, he said "just shoot me". Thanks...
