    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Votrient): Just got my first bottle of Votrient today. Hoping to see shrinkage of tumor and lymph node masses.

    Len-
    I was just diagnosed with metastatic RCC a couple of weeks ago. Have an appointment at Vanderbilt Cancer Center on Monday. My onc recommended I look at IL2 which they do there. Am familar with Signal Mountain. My sister lived there for about 3 years in the 1990's. Very beautiful area. Herb

      Not familiar w/ IL2. Was diagnosed metastatic rcc in 2010. Earlier in life lost left kidney to Wilm's tumor. Had tumor at L-5 and S-1 removed at Vanderbilt 12/2010. Dr. described surgery as palliative. Partial nephrectomy followed in 02/2011. Then 28 rounds of radiation and have been on Sutent ever since. Sutent is an immunotherapy drug. All scans have been clear. I would recomend you discuss Sutent with your ONC. Sorry I missed you before your trip to Nashville. Vandy is an excellent Hospital in my book, very much like my experience at the Emory Hospitals down in GA. Love the south and Signal Mountain. Feel free to ask ?'s. Wish you the best in your journey.

      My dad had the same as you and tried the IL2 and it didn't help. This was 26 years ago.
