MMSig Posted June 7, 2004 Share Posted June 7, 2004 My Dad has Lung cancer. He has just completed seven weeks of radiation. He now has significant swelling in his feet and ankles. His Doctors have not yet determined the cause of this. He is being tested for congestive heart failure, etc.. to rule that out. Does anyone have any experience with water retention as a side effect of cancer treatment? Any ideas as to what causes this and what to do to correct it? He is often dehydrated (not drinking enough liquids). Does dehydration cause water retention? Any input is greatly appreciated!
