Re: Question on kidney cancer

Avalon,

Sorry to hear about your boyfriend. My dad was just diagnosed with RCC, and had the left kidney removed.... from what I have learned it is possible to spread to the other kidney along with other areas...
I really wish you had the opportunity to go with him to the doctor... if you don't, I think the list of questions is a great idea...I sent my questions with my mom to the doctor, due to me not being able to be there. It is better to have answers than to constantly worry...
As far as the pills go, in my dad's case they are offering Sutent or Nexavar (I may have spelled those incorrectly)... Remember that the pills have different reactions with different people... although I find this board and everyone's postings very helpful...
I hope you find a way to get answers to ease your mind...
Good luck!
