chemo and lymphodema

Hi, Has anyone started with Lymphodema or had there mild Lymphodema get worse whilst on weekly Taxol. Lesley xx

Hi Lesley

I haven’t had chemo yet so can’t really help, but I’m sure I’ve read thread in the past where someones lymphoedema did get slightly worse but cannot remember which chemo or when I read the thread, sorry. I’m sure someone will be along who can be of more help.

Are you having this problem?

Hi Lesley

I replied to you on the liver secondaries thread, yesterday, I think.

I think I’m the person that Lynni was referring to as I was given Taxotere recently and also had lymphoedema which got worse during the chemotherapy. I started a thread about it here in the Lymphoedema forum and I’ll bump it for you now.
