I'd like to hear about side effects of pazopanib. Not just the long list that comes with the drug, but what someone on the list has actually experienced. The oncologist tells you all the bad stuff and it's pretty scary. I have the opportunity to get into a study for Stage III RCC. I've had my right radical nephrectomy and have no known cancer today (as of 10/20/11). The study is to see if pazopanib prevents recurrence.
It's hard to weigh the risks of recurrence (35-50% according to the oncologist) against the chances of severe side effects (like death!). On top of that the whole point of the study is that nothing has yet been found to prevent recurrence and they're trying this drug now.
Thanks for the list, it's a real help.
