I finished a 6-infusion program of docetaxel about 8 weeks ago and was fortunate not to suffer any particularly unpleasant side effects (no nausea but increasing fatigue). However, about 6 weeks' ago my ankles and calves started swelling. I have had a vascular scan ("lymphoscintigraphy") done and this does not show any signs of lymphedema. However, I have significant water retention and have gained as much as 10kg because of this (normal weight 100kg, now 110kg - height 182cm). A lymphatic drainage massage and compression stockings have given significant relief. I am told that the condition may disappear in time with this treatment. I am just wondering if anyone has had a similar condition and if this might indeed be related to the chemotherapy?
