I had a partial nephrectomy 7 years ago for a stage 1 (grade 3) 2.5cm tumor. I'm looking for encouraging stories of people that are many years out without a recurrence. Seems like most stories online are the bad stories. Looking for positive ones. I've had a great 7 years - and now have two small children - and the though of recurrence still weighs heavily on me.

It so read from my kidneys to my left femur and the tumor actually fractured my femur and then it spread to my spine. I've had a rod placed in my femur and my left kidney removed and the tumor removed off my spine. My hair is falling out, not in...
my husband was diagnosed with rcc on feb 2 2017. Stage 4 which spread to brain and liver. He had brain tumor removed and a second one treated with radiation. Tumor is to large to remove his kidney. So he has been put on votrient to attemp to shrink it some. Prayers appreciated! Anyone have really good results with votrient? The first scan will be May 2 Wish us luck
