After so many investigations and procedures I finally get to start drug treatment. MRI done this past Saturday shows L1 lesion a little reduced in size with no spinal cord encroachment and oncologist is happy for me to go ahead with drug treatment just wants to chat with both spinal surgeon and radiation oncologist to confirm results. Further CT scan and nuclear bone scan for comparison also needed but this will not delay commencement.
I know we are all different and not likely to have the same reaction to medication but wanted any advice from Votrient users about what I may expect and how long after taking the drug before any side effects and suggestions in dealing with them gladly accepted. The list of side effects in the printed document is quite scary!
Wishme luck and here's hoping for minimal side effects.
