I, like many others, have also looked at these discussion boards before finally becoming a part of this exclusive club as some of you say.. lol. My dad is having a laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. They diagnosed him in September 2011, with RCC Stage 4 with nodules/mets? to his lungs. He started on Votrient late September and December scans showed a small reduction to his tumor and nodules/mets in lungs were alot smaller (according to oncologist). He is now scheduled for his surgery tomorrow, and we are praying that this will help him beat this monster. I am a bit worried that with one kidney left, what if a tumor eventually grows there.. I'm trying to stay positive thought and hope and pray for the best.
You have all kindly shared your stories, and I wanted to share mine. THank you.
