Anyone experience swelling of legs and feet, after chemo. I'm 3 weeks out getting worse by the day. I have to work, be on my feet... I try to rest as much as I can. I feel good when I'm moving around as soon as I sit, they just start to swell and burn. Normal?

Anyone have the above chemo cocktail? Ive got all 3 every 3 weeks plus Herceptin the 2 weeks in between. So getting treatments every week for 18 weeks. Looking for anyone who has had a similar plan.
Personal question, hoping for honest experience..... I'm starting chemo on Tuesday and I know that my hair is going to fall out. WHEN do you recommend shaving your head?

I have just started chemo treatment with cytoxan and taxotere. I've heard this will dry out your skin. Any suggestions on skincare during chemo, especially facial moisturizer?
Has anyone else heard of the stacked DEIP/PAP flap? Used mostly my private offices when women do not have sufficient abdominal tissue to make the desired Breast replacement so they do a stacked 4 flap a combined DEIP/PAP on each side.
Looking to have this done but having reservations. I have implants now and have terrible tightness on the radiated side, I can't stand it. I just want them out! Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm feeling so anxious about getting scan results on Monday & seeing oncologist. ...the waiting is hard
