          Hi Carrie I feel well that is apart from a little breathlessness and hip pain. My treatment with votrient starts on the 5th January and I am hoping it works and I don't suffer to many side effects I believe there is always hope and I am trying to be positive about life but I have down days I'm afraid Many thanks for your kind concerns Gerard

I know how you felt when you mentioned it took you three months to re...
