I get Avastin every 21 days. I get a severely swollen tongue about 1 week after treatment, sometimes only after one or two days. Is it a side effect of Avastin, or is it the combination of the drugs I am taking? Gabapentin, FAmotidine, Acyclovir, Meloxicam. I have lung cancer, am in remission. Thank you for your help!
