Swelling (edema) - Jennew

Side Effects Associated with Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, Ductal. Posted on October 30, 2012 View this journey (10 Experiences)

My feet, hands, arms and legs started swelling. Feet are so painful, skin is splitting and peeling. My fingernails are lifting and turning black. Feels like they have been hit with a hammer. My left arm is so swollen I can't bend it. My Oncologist ordered a scan to see if I had a clot somewhere. Turns out it was in my Port. So they took it out right away. Swelling has gotten better. But something is still wrong.

    Wow you're really having an awful time of it. Dad had swelling in his legs early on. I could press my thumb into his leg and it would leave an imprint. They became very red, then started to peel and flake almost like a sunburn. Lotion lotion lotion. Are you able to eat okay? We were advised that some swelling can come from low blood protein. Protein helps hold fluid in your vessels.
