Hello Sally99,
My husband was on Nexavar up until this past August. He started it in January 2010. He did have several procedure in addition to the Nexavar but at one point they had him in criteria for transplant. Sadly he is no longer in criteria and we are searching for any other options. Wondering how many tumors your brother has? There are a few people I have found who have been on the Nexavar for 2 plus years.. I'm sure there are probably more out there too.
Best of luck!
