My first shot was April 2014. In June I was sent to the ER because the doc-in-the-box felt I was having a blood clot. Sot did I. My left leg was swollen just like it did in 2011 from a blood clot. However, after testing, they said that wasn't the problem. I told them I had just started taking Avastin, but no one seemed to pay attention. That leg and ankle are still swollen and my scratching in the middle of the night is scaring me. i'm diabetic.
My geriatric doctor put me on lasix twice, along with a water pill hydrosomething. Neither worked.
The results of the latest bloodwork for diabetes showed low potassium. My doctor said Lasix could cause this. However, when i researched side effects of Avastin, I came up with low potassium.
I'm very concerned about this. My geriatric doc thinks the swollen leg is from inflammation from herniated disks. I've had this for several years. I'm concerned it is the Avastin; otherise, why did my leg take so long to swell.
If anyone else is taking Avastin and is having side effects, i would like to know. This drug is like lecentis. A very tiny amount is shot inside your eye every few weeks.
