Hi, all. I was diagnosed with Stage IV RCC a couple of months ago and had my left kidney, adrenal gland and 15 or so lymph nodes removed 6 weeks ago. I also have metastatic disease in my lungs and a possible node in my other kidney. I'm starting Sutent today and frankly I am scared out of my mind. I'm 42 years old with two little girls, 11 and 7, and I'm really afraid of (1) dying and (2) starting Sutent.
Any words of encouragement are appreciated. I'm really lost here.
