    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Sutent): Started SUTENT 50mg after removal of kidney. Just finishing cycle 20. Lowered meds to 37.5 after cycle 17 due to feet problems. Seems to be continuing to work. Oncology checkups every 6 weeks with cat scans quarterly.

    Hi
    Since 4/01/10. Right kidney removed. Stage IV. A dozen mets scattered thru out lungs. SUTENT 20 cycles. Sounds about like the same story. Have you been on the SUTENT for the full time. Hoping things continue to be well with you. I say "thank you" each day and remain positive.

      I have been on Sutent since late February. Waiting for latest CT scan results next Tuesday and expecting Sutent to be refilled based on good scan. If not, have to discuss options then. My faith gives me strength and I, too, remain positive each day and be happy for what is so great about life.
