When you talk to your onc - do ask him about a combination of lasix and aldactone, which are diuretics. My husband had problems with water retention, including the 'boys' and these meds (together, he was given lasix alone and it didn't work) reduced the symptoms. Eating less salty food and drinking lots of water, might help as well. I don't remember, if you are currently on chemo, but I believe, Gemzar can cause water retention.

Hugs & positive energy - Gudrun
