lenswife's Recent CancerCompass Activity

    Hello! My husband Len received his 9th infusion last week, he has shown improvement (tumors up to 1/3 smaller on some scans), the latest scan the tumors all remained approx the same size (measured in millimeters and no growth..so still a positive). He has gained back almost all of the weight he lost while on sutent and afinitor and currently has less cancer than he did at this time last year!

      After two cycles of sutent (mixed results) and three months on afinitor (tumor growth, high blood sugar, weight loss) my husband had his first infusion of this drug on Sept. 2nd. Since then he has gained back 40+lbs, blood levels have all returned to normal and last ct scan showed shrinkage in tumors in both his lungs and liver. A few are no longer visible.

          Hello! My husband Len, 45 was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer on Sept 28, 2010, had his left kidney removed November 1st. January 5th, 2011 we found out that it had spread to his liver and spine. He started sutent in January, had radiation on his spine in February. After two cycles of sutent his most recent ct scan showed mixed results, shrinkage in the liver mets however, growth in those in his spine, a frature in his T2 and new mets in his lungs. He is now on afinitor. We are trying to take things one day at a time
