New here. I am posting for my best friend who has Prostate Cancer Stage 4. He had his 6th chemo of docataxel and then had a very bad case of lymphedema on both his legs (calves and thighs) and one arm. At the back of his legs , one can feel hard fibrous tissue (?) running along the back of both thighs. In the last couple of days lymphedema has spread to his scrotum area. He is not able to urinate at times so he needs a catheter.
Does anyone know the remedy? Could it be caused by the chemo or something else? Is he in danger as it spreads to his scrotum area now?
He has tried massaging but it is not working.
