Does anyone have advice for us on a blood pressure issue? Rocky started back on a lighter version of chemo this week, Herceptin and 5FU pump. Today is the last day for the pump. Thursday he came home and his right leg (from the calf down) was really swollen and his blood pressure was high. 190/100 in that range all night. He is on blood pressure mediccine that until now was keeping it under control. After elevating his legs and waatching it for two days it is still high. Still in the 190/100 range. Does chemo raise blood pressure or cause swelling in the legs? His right leg is better but still swollen. No other symptons other that fatigue from the chemo. No headache, not light headed and no leg pain, etc. Trying to figure out if we should go to the ER?
