I am frequent visitor to this forum and posted couple of times. On saturday March 22, 2014, my husband has crossed 2 years mark of survival. He was diagnosed with Stage IV RCC ( about 12 cm tumor with mets to lungs) on march 22. We were shattered. He was only 32 years old that time. We had 5 yearls old twins( now they are 7). It was hard but then got some strength. Did some online research. Luckily, we live close to Boston and they have best hospitals.
He underwent nephrectomy in April 2012. Before starting his IL-2 treatment, 3 spots were found in brain. then did Cyber knife. Then 2 rounds of IL-2 which worked fantastically. He is in remission since Jan 2013 as far as torso is concerned. There was one lesion on spine was found in jan 2013. they did 3 weeks radiation But they keep on finding brain lesion every 6-7 months. Last he had cyber knife in Dec 2013. Last week his brain scan came out good. Nothing new.
Hoping and praying to cross many many years with good health. I wish you all the best...I feel sometime that some of forum members I know them personally..foxd, icemantoo, garym, ron, neil and many more..
