I have been a RCC stage 4 patient for six years, left kidney and tumor rumored with cancer mestacized to both lungs. Went through all the meds: sutent, nexavar, interluken. Cancer kept growing, I had to stop treatment four years ago and the cancer stopped growing and actually shrunk. The cancer starting growing last summer. This past Xmas I was introduced to Votrient at 800mg daily. My blood pressure went up to 228 / 120 and I was immediately hsopitalized. I had severe joint pain in my right shoulder. I ceased the votrient and just began at a lower level of 200mg each day. Diarahea and blood pressure were immediately impacted. Now I have severe right shoulder pain, I am taking pain pills every . I am seeing the doctor on Thursday
