What can you do about swelling fingers?

I've never had swelling of anything. I kept the same ring size etc.. Have you? I've had Chemo since April. For the past 2-3 weeks my hands fingers have swollen. Can I do anything about that? Have you? Will this go away? Anyone know.. I always was a 4 1/2 to 5. How about you!?

  • Ask the nurses when you go for your next chemo treatment, it is probably a side effect of the chemo. Have you tried drinking more water and limiting salt? You could also try the American Cancer Society website and see if there are any helpful hints on there. I hope you feel better soon!!!
