Right kidney removed 4-21-06. CT 4-11-07 showed multiple tumors in both lungs. After approval from ins. co. started Nexavar on 5-15-2007. Had hand foot syndrome, sore mouth, constipation but tumors shrank in 3 mo and were gone in 6 mo.I was off work for 5 mo then went back to work as side effects backed off. It is 7-27-08 and tumors are still gone. I know nexavar works. It may not be for everyone but I was in good health until tumor was found in right kidney. My diagnosis is advanced renal carcinoma (Clear cell type).

Had metastatic Kidney Cancer three years ago and had the left Kidney removed. Clean for two years until a brain CT revealed 12 small mets. Did three weeks of Radiation and put on Nexavar. Now a year later and still clean. Side effects passed after a time. Lost 65lbs, from 268lbs. to 203lbs. Very weak and tire quickly. It's getting better, however. I think it's working!. davemiller1590@yahoo.com

RCC tumors have remained stable for over 2 years. Side effects are sore mouth, fatique, loss of appetite, and chickenpox type sores on legs, arms and upper torso. Squamous skin cancer also related to drug side effect. No growth in tumor size in over 2 years.

It is 12-03-09, I put a review in on 7-27-08. I am still on nexavar for advanced renal cell carcinoma and tumors are still gone. I still have problems with hand and foot syndrome. I forgot to add in my first review that my teeth became loose and my gums hurt and began to bleed. I had top and bottom partials so I had my teeth pulled and that took care of that problem. Also my hair started to fall out but it stopped and went into tight curls-has remained that way for 1 1/2 years. I am still a believer in the power of nexavar. It may not be for everybody but it is working for me.

This drug was used to treat metastatic liver cancer. The major side affects were blisters on the bottom of my feet and the palms of my hands. It also caused sores and tenderness on the inside of my mouth and tongue.It also caused diarrhea. I had to stop taking the drug because of the side affects.
