Comment:
Had rcc in lungs about 5 years. On Sutent about 4 years. Minimal growth each cat-scan. Tired heavy feeling legs,loss of appetite, heart burn, sensitive mouth, some diaherra & fatige, watery, puffy eyes are the main side effects experienced. As time goes by, feeling more tired,less energy. Overall has been keeping the tumors small with minimal growth.
