... Good Day, My husband is set to start his Votrient treatment today. I am a bit nervous due to all the possible side effects. This is the second time his spindle cell sarcoma has reappeared. He has had a lobectomy on his right lung in February. The chemo treatment he was on since then did not work. The dr's have said there is not cure for him, but they have high hopes to control the growth of the tumors. My basic question is this: How long can someone be on this drug? If it does work how quickly can the effect be noted? Any answers will be appreciated. Thank you
