Hello, I am new to this forum. I am 71 years old and was just diagnosed with cancer on both kidneys and on my pancreas. I had my dye scan on 1/31/13 and that confirmed the areas that are affected with cancer. On 2/7/13 I had a biopsy to confirm the type of cancer that I had. After seeing a urologist on 2/20/13 he referred me to an oncologist for treatment. The oncologist decided to treat me with Votrient. After jumping through a few hoops I received the Votrient and started taking it on 3/1/13.
My next scan is on 5/1/13 and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the Votrient is working. So far I haven't had any side effects. My hair is already white so I don't expect much change there. In the meantime I'll keep on doing what I do and hope for the best.
