|An evening of E.R./ Urgent care and radiation confusion!|
Lymphedema occurs when the lymph system is damaged or blocked. Fluid builds up in soft body tissues and causes swelling. It is a common problem that is caused by cancer and cancer treatment.
The new tumors and growth in Terence's pelvic area has compromised his lymphatic system.
So Terence is finally home from the E.R. and was told to stay off his feet, at least until Monday (it's Friday)- when we speak with his oncology nurse. I suppose we'll get some tutoring then.
Meanwhile, I've been doing some research on how to manage it.....
