Comment:
One year after radical nephrectomy was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Have been on Sutent for about 18 months now, 37.5/day, two weeks on, one week off... Side effects are unpleasant but manageable and fairly predictable. On Sutent tumors have either disappeared or have shrunk steadily to very small sizes. This drug has been a life-saver for me.
