I have been done with treatments since 1st of year but the swelling and shortness of breath remains they have already taken 2 liters of fluid out of me from around and inside my lungs. now 3 weeks later is building up again.

I haven't heard of anyone retaining fluids like that...Could you be somehow allergic to something? or are you having sensitivity issues with the chemo????? Check with the doc and don't leave without some answers. Good luck and God bless.
