Hubby is still doing pretty well. Just completed treatment number 17. Has anyone experienced problems with swelling in the hands and feet while receiving radiation treatments? I noticed that my husband has swelling in his hands, feet, and legs below his knees. He did have some swelling in his legs prior to receiving treatments, but was told by his neuroglogist, that this was due to the Parkinson's medication. I will contact his doctor on tomorrow. I hope you'll realize what a blessing it has been to have your support and concern. May the Lord continue to shower his blessings upon each and everyone one of you! Hope you'll have a Happy Valentine's Day!. Hadn't quite figured out what I'm going to get for hubby. Just in case you guys are at a loss as to what to do for your significant others, we love gift certificates for full service spas(massages), and certificates to have our nails and hair done.
Wishing you'll a healthy and prosperous year!
