Hello friends- M 68 Years old and new to this forum, I was diagnosed with stage four disease in jan 2014, whic revealed mets rcc in left kidney and mets in lung. Undergone nephrectomy in feb 2014 was is hospital for week. In march i started 25 Mg sutent dose. Side effects were mild and bearable. Did my 1st pet scan post Surgery in May 2014, which revealed lungs cleared. Doctor sugested to continue with the current management. Today i completed 1year and 2months on sutent. Last scan was done in Feb 2015 which say NED.

The side effects pretty much did me in. But it seemed to be holding the cancer back I guess I'll find out on Tuesday when I get the results of my scan.

Footstomper, what dosage were you on? And keeping fingers crossed for good results!

37.5 Two weeks on, one week off. It got to the point I was measuring my days by how many trousers I got through. A three-trouser day was not a good day.

You have a great sense of humor :) But the difference is dosage probably explains why the OP had relatively mild side effects while yours was not exactly what we could call mild.
