My husband has been on Nexavar for 2 weeks and is having terrible side effects - hands so raw and sore he cannot touch anything and mouth sores so bad he cannot eat. Its way to early to tell if it is working for us - but I do not know how much longer he will be able to stay on it. They say some of the side effects go away in time but I am not sure he will make it long enough to see if that happens.

I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy after seeing what it did to my father. He took Nexavar for two weeks. On the second week he became very ill, vomited, could not control his bowel movements nor walk. The doctor prescribed this poison after he devoloped end stage liver cancer. After the second week the doctor took him off of Nexavar and gave him a week to live, on his last week he had Dementia, was screaming in agony and had stupors. He finally died from pneumonia and liver failure. I was very close to him.

Even though my husband was only on this for 2 months it did nothing but make the little time he has miserable.Maybe it was too late but his tumor went from golf ball size to covering his whole liver during that time.I hope it does help someone.

Had a liver resection 7/22/11 where they removed a 2 1/2 lb. Tumor. Did not fit profile for hepatacellular carcinoma at all. Drs. Were surprised but, then again, why not me. Have lost most of hair , eyebrows, etc. But they will come back (I hope.). Rash in the beginning, no appetite, sore feet and constant diarrah. Have lost 45 lbs. So far. Could still lose more. Look good and feeling well. Everyone is amazed but I have a very positive attitude. I'm 67 year old female and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 45 years. I'm hoping to make it to our 50 anniversary, God willing. We can only do so much and the rest is upmto God. Keep the faith and pray.

My husband was on nex. For a month. Lots of pain due to side effect. Colostomy, bleeding, leg swelling, back pain etc... Suffered for one year. And passed away in May 2011, He was only 51 years old. Saddly, it did not work for him.
