radiation on lung and brain surgery. will start gamma knife procedure in couple weeks. want some input
my husband is on votrient since 2/12/11.. his last ct showed shrinkage in kidney, liver and noggles on lungs seem smaller, no change on spline. side effects.. hand & foot.. red some blister but can be treated.. if you see any redness or they get sore, start to cream (alot) sometimes a bit of nausea but not bad-a little tired but not bad either-taste is off but we're getting use to. lost a little weight not much. i think you'll be real happy. I hear good reviews on this medicine. Can you keep me posted on the gamma knife, right now we're waiting for 2nd ct scan. i would be interested for future treatment. good luck
I am not familar with stereotactic. Votrient is the third targeted therapy my husband has had over the last 3 yrs.Votrient shot up his blood pressure(now under control), causes fatigue and loss of appetite.He will have a ct in June to check effectiveness, I've been in touch with a lady on this site that reported a decrease in tumor size in her husband who has been on Votrient since January.His side effects have been similar to my husband's, but he also had rash and blisters on feet.I hope your Father responds well to it.
