Hi fellow warriors. I completed my first line chemo in May 2017 and am currently having 3 weekly Avastin as part of the Icon 8b trial. I've had quite a few side effects with pain but about 3 weeks ago my upper abdomen under my bra strap and down to my belly button have become increasingly swollen as the day goes on. At the moment my waist is 3 and a half inches bigger at night than in the morning and my ankles become swollen too. Yesterday my cancer nurse said that it could be a rare side effect of the avastin and that I needed an urgent CT scan. I have been told to stop the avastin until the results come back.
Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? My Ca125 has dropped to 34 (at one stage over 11 000) and my bloods are ok so I can't imagine that the OC has come back already. Does anyone have any idea what it might be? I am starting to get anxious as I wait for my CT scan appointment.
