My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 RCC in 1/2009. Had right radical nephrectomy 2 weeks later.
October 2009 diagnosed with mestastic RCC to the lungs.
He has done 2 rounds of 50mg Sutent. Latest ct scan has showed:
* Nodule in the left lower lobe is 3mm - it was 11mm.
* Largest nodule measures 5x6mm - previously measured 7x8mm
* Drastic decrease in size & visible number of bilateral pulmonary nodules
* Adrenal gland measures 8mm, previously it was 2.3cm
He started Sutent again tonight.
Has anyone else had success with Sutent. If so, did you continue to take it? If or when do you think you will stop?
