Been reading this board the last few days and got some great advice. I bought the book Three Months to Life earlier today.
My Dad is in his late 70s and back in 2008 they removed a Kidney. He was on Sutent during 2009 and stopped in 2010. Everything seemed great until January 2011 when it spread to bones and a section where the old kidney was. Radiation in his leg and a rod was placed there back in September 2011. Put on Nexavar.
Got word a few days ago (March 2012) that there are spots in lung and liver. Small but three spots in each. Now moving him to Affinitor.
I see a PFS of about 4.5 months on Affinitor. Are there any other drugs after Affinitor- is this the last defense?
Hopefully the book "Three Months to Life" will help with non-drug success.
