Kidney metastasis

I was diagnosed with kidney cancer in March 2002 and had my left kidney removed . No chemo treatment as not applicable . All was well until September 2012 when the cancer metasised in my brain ,thyroid and lungs .
My whole brain was treated with radiotherapy and a few months later with the cyber knife . I was also treated with pazopanib 600 mls . The pazopanib has kept the tumours at bay until the present time September 2015. It has now stopped working and I am being treated with Axitinib . I am due another scan in December to see how it's doing.
Basically I'm writing this thread to inform anyone in a similar situation . I feel I've been very lucky to have gone so long .

Re: Kidney metastasis

Thank you for sharing your story of longevity and hope after such a serious diagnosis. You have obviously had an extension of life longer than most with kidney cancer, and your positive attitude undoubtedly helped your treatment effectiveness. I admire your bravery and reaching out to others who may be going through similar difficulties. Thank you and good luck with your newest treatment regimen.
