Has this new target therapy worked? Has is started shrinking the tumor? If so, how long you taking before you saw any difference in the size. Just looking for feedback.. Is sutent a better choice?
hi, dazza ,here,sutent has shrunk my tumors,one of my lungs has no sight of cancer and their was a lot of spots .the other lung has visable good effect of shrinkage.this is my fourth stint ,with the two weeks break in between rounds of the drug.this time round have a fewer amount of mouth ulcers,and had less visual distribance.feel ok at present ,difficult not to seem to catch virus with, four children,but not back to work,waiting for hopefully another good result on next scan.im not sure about any other drug,but im having good effect,this drug does have horid side effects,with alot of people,i must be lucky that some how,my body is able to stand the drug.again how long for?who knows.???
speak to your onco-- .thats if you feel comfortable,but its your life and your decision in the end....i was diagnosed in august,its now back end of march...borrowed time???no positive thinking..thats all i can say...take care
I realize this answer is very, very late ... but may help someone in future. (And also hope that whatever your doctor decided for you has given you a positive outcome).
