I took Sutent for 7 month - in[phone number redacted]. Because it is an oral medication it doesn't affect your energy as much as infusions do. My energy was at about 85%-90% of normal. I was still able to do work but I was much more tired at the end of the day, and needed to cut back on other things.
The side effects I had were:
mouth sores which we managed with Magic Mouth wash.
High BP - I was already had this condition and was on a low dose medication to control it, we needed to increase it slightly I went from 25mg to 50mg of atenolol
Each person is different so your experiences may be different than mine.
