Seems like once you get one problem sorted out, another one pops up. I've sort of come to terms with my bowel problems, using a combination of Metamucil fiber caplets, plus Imodium, to keep things on an even keel, and so far it seems to be working pretty well (crossed fingers).
Now, all of a sudden I have been experiencing swelling of my ankles and feet. It's not every day, although it has become more frequent in the past week. Is this something to be concerned about, or another one of those Johnny-come-lately side effects from either chemo or radiation? Other than elevating my legs, what can I do to alleviate the swelling? My legs feel 'tight' and achy, too, like I have overdone it at the gym.
Is this any way to start off the new year? NO! ;)
Hope all of you are doing well.
