Can Taxotere or Cisplatin cause swelling and weakness in lower legs?


Posted by saint

I have finished 6 Chemotherapy treatments.  Three with Carboplatin, Taxotere & Herceptin, and three with Cisplatin, Taxotere & Herceptin.  I have had swelling in my lower legs, worse in my left leg and foot for 3 weeks.  It is better and I am beginning to try mild excercise (walking, stretching) but my muscels feel weak and sore.  I was an active person before Chemo but did not follow a formal excercise program.
