chemo question


Recommended Posts

started my chemo yesterday .. today the arm that it was adminstered in is swollen.. not at the injection site ..the whole arm - not to where I can't use it or even that it hurts.. it doesn't..I just know that it's bigger and tighter than the other.. had carbo/taxol.. any else have had this problem ? Should I be concerned?

I called the dr and they said that if it's still swollen in the morning to see them...they told me to keep it above my heart as much as possible.. I know that if there is someone here that has had this problem, I'd find out faster than even from the doc's..

appreciate any info.. just a little concerned..
