Fingers swelling

Has anyone experienced swelling in their fingers?  I cannot put any of my rings on. Before tx I weighed 25lbs more, still in tx till next Nov. I would think with the weight loss, my rings should fit.
Thanks,

My fingers swelled about a month into tx, but I had a rash on my hands that didn't itch.  I took benedryl and it went away in a few days.  It's hard to tell if you are having the same type of problem.  Sorry I can't help.  Maybe someone else can.  - Carol

Do you take diuretics? If so, have you made any recent med changes?

No bill, no med changes.  This started before I started treatment along with my lower legs and ankles.  Thought it eould go away when the pre treatment weight gain went away, nope.  All but fingers went down.
