My husband was diagnosed in March of this year with Stage 4 clear cell RCC. He had 2 rounds of Sutent which worked some on round 1one. He had a radical nephrectomy in July to remove the tumor, kidney and ended up taking his spleen, part of his diaphram, almost half of his pancreas -- Now he is undergoing IL2 for the mestasisis to his lungs. He is only 42 and we struggle to find a reason why this disease has manifested to such a stage so early in his life. The doctors said because of the size of the tumor it has been growing for many years. Tomorrow he goes in for the second week of round 1 for IL2. The side effects were pretty bad on the 3, 4, 5 day and his blood pressure did drop so he ended up in ICU to be monitored. Does anyone else have experience with their spouse undergoing IL2 treatment? Thanks...
