Assure Trial: Sutent/Nexavar users, I have a Question.

Had a radical neph on March 16, recovery has been super. Started on the Assure trial on April 20, and started feeling effects the last few days: Taste changes, heels hurt, not too spunky. I am 39, heavy set male, decent shape, big chested, but never with "boobs." Two more weeks of this and I'll be working at Hooters instead of farming.

Anyone else seen this while on these drugs? Will call my trial leader tomorrow and see it this is a side effect, but cannot find it as such.

My husband has had three rounds of sutent therapy and this has not occurred. It may be a side effect of the other medication you are on.
