My boyfriend was recently diagnosed with Renal cell carcinoma with mets. He's on his second week of therapy with Sutent.. His side effects are minimal. Complains mostly of heart burn and fatigue. But he says he feels "tingling" in the areas where the cancer is?! It's not painful, just noticeable. Has anyone else experienced this?!
I'm sorry I'm so late in answering your question. I just saw it. According to drugs.com, tingling of the hands and feet is common, but there was no mention of tingling anywhere but in the extremeties. The heartburn and fatigue are definitely common, but if any of these side effects become bothersome, he should contact his doctor. Best wishes for successful treatments!
