Comment from: emmie, 25-34 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year Published: October 11

my mother has been on this drug for less than a year. At first the side affects were awful and she was removed from it. Then they lowered the dosage, now for the most wonderful news of all. This drug only helps 30% of people, she was told this drug would not save her life only prolong it. Well, she started with tumors in her lungs, her glands and in her liver. Now she has NO tumors in her lungs, no glandular cancer and only a small amount of tumor left in her live. A drug that we were told might prolong her life has saved it. The doctors have actually mentioned the "r" word. After this next dosage the cancer in her liver may be gone completely and we can say she is in remission. I cried when I heard the news.. Thank gods for this drug. Yes it only helps 30% but those 30% it could be a life saver for!!

I have been taking Sutent for 19 months. I have experienced high blood pressure, dry skin , nausea and diarrhea. I am taking meds to counteract these effects and find them very tolerable. I have had no new tumor growth for over a year. Great drug.

I have been on Sutent for two years. After reading the reviews I find I have gone through all the side efects. It took 18 months for my hands and feet return fully back to normal. My worst effect is the loss of appitite during the 4 weeks on the pill and the diarea. It returns to normal on the two weeks off. Keep with it gang as the results I have are all good news. bone cancer from kidney cancer being held in tow.
