      I have been dealing with this disease for twelve years now. Whenever a met arises it has been in my lungs. When the first Metz came up nine months after diagnoses I had them both surgically removed. When the next one came up I tried Nexavar. It didn’t reduce the tumor and caused a boat load of side effects. I tried it for six months then just went with surgery again. My most recent tumor three years ago we tried radiation to shrink it and possibly kill it. That didn’t work either. Again I had it surgically removed. To date I have had recurrence 5 times and all have been surgically removed.

      I knew someone (my former boss) who is living with metastatic kidney cancer that went to her pancreas. It's been three or so years since she was first diagnosed with kidney cancer in only the kidney. She said there's no chemo for kidney cancer (she goes to MSKCC). She was doing okay when she fired me two months ago. Last I know about her.
