Hi there, i had a mastectomy g3 dcis last year followed few weeks later by 8 rounds of chemo which have just recently finished. I have had all the usual side effects, helped by the anti sickness meds etc, but noticed the last few rounds, (every 3 weeks) that i came out in hives, progressively worse each time, last time all over my body, like a very angry severe allergic reaction to something.
With antihistamines, and possibly just time, this went away after 3 or 4 days, but on one occasion i noticed a massive (palm sized) lump just below my calf muscle, like a massive mosquito bite and was itchy at the time... after a week or so it went down but am left with about a third of this still now, couple of months on.. I did ask during one of my treatments about it and the doctor said hmmm. probably nothing to worry about, and didnt seem too perturbed by t it. i am due to see my oncologist this week and will ask him but am interested to know if anyone else had anything like this during their experience? trying not to worry unduly about it till someone tells me what it is.
