Fluid retention

Last reply: 9 years ago

My partner is just finished his second round of chemo and has gained 2 stone in a week from fluid. His body is swollen, feet, ankles face, and he is so uncomfortable but no hair loss, other side effects are lack of taste. How long before he loses this excess weight.?

I see from our message board that you got no response to your query.I do hope that the excessive fluid your partner is retaining has resolved since and that you have been in contact with the oncology team.
