    Side Effects (Mouth dryness): Mom has major moth dryness and pain, no sores as of yet. Only about 4 days left on 1st round of Sutent. The pain is so bad she is having a hard time eating anything now.

      I'm sorry your Mom is having a hard time. I'll be thinking of you and your mom. Can she try a lemon drop or cough drop to help with the mouth dryness?

      Thanks for your kind words. Back at you regarding your Dad. She ended up having to stop Sutent early - few days early. Mouth pain turned into many ulcers, could not eat because of pain. Tried magic mouthwash not much help - now prescribed dental paste with steroids yesterday - hopefully will give relief. She will probably start seeing relief as well as she is off Sutent for 2 weeks.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Mom started Sutent about 2 weeks ago. So far minimal side effects, but it is early still. Hope for the best.
