Renal Cell Carcinoma stage IV help for a first time patient, age 48. Hi I'm Vic.
| Vic Gratta
Hello, This is my first time on here and asking for any advice. I was recently diagnosed with RCC stage IV . I had a radical nephrectomy, and nodules removed from lymph. They found it spread to muscles in my but and close to trachea. I was given options and am not sure what to do. A doctor close to home prescribed Opdivo at her local office. She's great, she found it initially before I had the kidney removed and told me to go to Sloan Kettering then. I did. They now have sent me another doc in house in NYC( about 2 1/2 hours commute). That specialist gave a lots of options for just a pill as the standard. (Votrient) or numerous clinical trials that requires extensive trips. The trials involve Lenvatinib and Pembrolizumab. And another is like pot luck with some random patients getting Atezolizumab + Bevacizumab vs some getting Sunitinib.
My question is what have any of yourselves found to be helpful so far. Would geography throw a curveball at you in this situation. Has anyone tried any of those drugs on trials or otherwise. Sorry so overwhelmed .

Hideous side effects.
To extend life ~ 10% (GSK's bottom line) for a 90% decrease in quality of life . . .
No wonder Oncologists won't try this poison on themselves.
And then prescribe more drugs (with their own side effects) to suppress Votrient's side effects?
From the Hippocratic Oath to the hipocritic oaf.
Another lab rat in chemo'$ $earch for profit$
