I am newly diagnosed with CML and have been taking 300mg of Imatinib for four weeks. Two weeks ago my eyes and lower legs started to get oedema and I’ve put on two pounds. The oedema is not very noticeable, except to me. Under my eyes are puffy and my legs feel tight.
I don’t want to take diuretics. I read we can manage this through diet. What does everyone think or have experienced? Does anything worK? My oncologist said massage doesn’t work.
