Sutent for renal cell carcinoma: What are the side effects?

So I had the nephrectomy in May 2019. I was sick for 2 months. I thought it was a kidney stone. I did have a stone but also a mass. I will never forget when the emergency room doctor told me I had a large mass in my kidney. It was so unreal! So now I am told the Sutent may work to prevent Mets but there are no quarentees.

The sutent has many side effects. I may or may not have a bad reaction no one knows. I am given percentages of how other people have reacted to this drug. It’s the best drug for my type of cancer I am told. I have to pay a co pay of course I don’t know how much. My insurance does cover it so I am lucky in that respect. Cancer is costly. The treatment had side effects and my be ineffective. I feel very depressed. I know right now I have no cancer but all that can change no one knows. But I guess that is just life. Right now I feel a bit afraid that nothing will work and I will suffer then die.
