Birdman has had his second cytoxan infusion about a week ago, today he said his leg is hurting below his knee. Its very tender to the touch. Is this normal or do I need to worry about blood clots?

Hi,

I've never had the infusions, so I'm not sure if that is normal or not. Are the areas of the leg that hurt hot to the touch? If you take his foot in your hand and then flex the top of the foot up toward his body does it hurt in his leg? If so on either of those questions, it could be a clot.
Warm and gentle hugs,
