My wife has hodgkins lymphoma stage 4B and was diagnosed in Jan 2009. She has declined chenmotheraphy as this is a relapse after she was "cured"of lymphoma stage 2B in 2005 after going through 16 sessions of chemotheraphy. We are pursuing alternative teatment- yoga, healing, juices, etc.
I have notoced puffiness in her face , and swell in abdomen and legs- looks like water retention. The CT scan in Jan 2009 revealed minor tumours in spleen and liver.
Is there medication that can help reduce these "swelling"- water retention i suspect.......please advise.
