I lost my right kidney to Renal Cell Carcinoma in 2000. Had to have a total hip replacementon the left hip in 2007 and when addressing the hip problem we found a tumor in the hip and on the left kidney. Sunitinib has stopped the tumors from growing. Side effect that have been tough to handle has been the constent fatique and thing don't taste right.
