Brief History: Male. 42 years old. Diagnosed mRCC April, 2012. Left radical nephrectomy with adrenal gland, partial spleen and 12 lymph nodes removed via laproscopic/robotic surgery May, 2012. Mets in lungs and elsewhere...
On to my question: I'm on day 18 of my first cycle of Sutent, 50mg. Overall I've been lucky with few side effects. Last couple of days, however, I'm experiencing neck pain that reaches up to my ears and back pain in what feels like the area of my remaining kidney, which also showed a nodule on CT scan.
Needless to say, I'm concerned that the Sutent is not stopping the growth in the other kidney and the pain in my neck and ears are new mets. In this groups opinion, is this a case of cancer crazies, or should I be concerned? Any other Sutent patients experience these side effects?
