Hi all,

I am currently on the SORCE trial at Addenbrookes in Cambridge. I was diagnosed with kidney cancer on 5th August 2012 as a 46 year old man and had the affected kidney removed approx 3 weeks later. It was checked and found to be stage 1 and grade 4. Due to the aggressive nature of it I was offered a place on the sorce trial, which I started on 5th November 2012. I am still on it and now on year  2 of 3. Loads of side effects and only a quarter dose as a result. Before I write any more it would be good to communicate with someone going through the same trial. I would be really pleased If someone could respond ?

Many thanks

Ali
