- Ulcerative colitis from avastin
Developed ulcerative colitis four days after Avastin injection in eye for myopic degeneration.
- Avastin and low potassium
I was put on Lasix twice to try to get rid of the swelling in the calf and foot of my left leg--then another water pill. Neither was successful. Recently I saw my geriatric doctor who examined the results of recent blood work. He asked me if anyone told me my potassium was low. Then said Lasix could cause that. ? Now I read that Avastin can cause that as well.
This is the second side effect that could be from Avastin.
I'm a type 2 diabetic who has had one blood clot in that leg. What, exactly is happening to that leg? Am in danger of having it amputated?
No doctor has provided me with enough information. I don't think my geriatric doctor knows. My podiatrist said I had a weak pulse in that leg when I told him it had not been checked in two years!
- Avastin--swelling of leg and foot--macular degeneration (2 responses)
I had my first shot of Avastin for Macular Degeneration in April 2014. My left leg and foot began swelling so much that I was sent to the ER. Doctors thought it was another blood clot, but it was not.
This is December and the swelling is worse.
- Jaw pain with avastin
My sister is currently taking Avastin and after each treatment she has sever jaw and tooth pain and pain in her lower abdomen. Her oncologist said that this medicine does not cause pain that she needs to see a dentist and will not give her anything for the pain.....
- Avastin and gout attacks
Avastin was injected into my right eye, with CRVO, 30 January, then to the left eye, with BRVO, 6 February. Two weeks later, I had significant joint and muscle pain in my hands, wrists, ankles, and knees, but it subsided in approximately 10 days.
Then the second injection for each eye followed 4 weeks later, 27 February and 6 March. After 2 weeks, the pain came again, although worse at times, and I identified it as gout attacks this time, after having read about the possibility of Avastin precipitating gout.
It is now7 April and with the use of an NSAID, bufenac forte, The pain has subsided, to the extent that I only use the NSAID once a day, sometimes 2 days.
My vision has improved and I will visit the doctor again on 9 April. Hopefully the gout does not return again. I have been able to control my gout attacks by avoiding high purine foods, for over a year, and was surprised that the Avastin precipitated an attacks(s) - the doctor had not warned me of this.
