My mother stared with nexavar on September 2012, and at the beginning was too strong for her, with several side effects.  She has liver cancer- final stage.  At the moment she is in a Hospice and all medication was suspended as they believed it was descompensating her kidney functioning.  My only recommendation is to seek for alternative natural methods.  In our case the doctor told me that the medication will "buy her a couple of months" Couple of months that have deteriored her health.  I send you all my regards, it is a very difficult situation where love and caring is the best remedy.

husband age 58 diagnosed stage IV w mets in lymph nodes and started on nexavar June 2012. CT 30 days later showed tumors unchanged(not getting larger). TACE w adriamycin was given x 4 doses and nexavar was continued. tumors showed 25% smaller after 2 treatments.his last treatment was Nov and he continues nexavar.  will have a CT next week because liver function decreasing and alpha feta protein going up. i hope this helps. nana j

Actually, before Nexavar, our AFP has been incresing 10 times for a month. (AFP 400->4000)

So, I cannot conclude tumor size increased after nexavar.

 

Our AFP continuously increaseing again 10 times for three weeks even after Nexavar. (4000-->30,000)

However, it gradually increases with decreasing rate for last three weeks. (30,000->32,000)

It is confusing. 

 

It is really effective? Or only side effect?
