Danny had finished up his 6 rounds of in-patient chemo (preceded by 26 rad treatments.) Oncologists were so pleased with the response of the tumors - there was considerable shrinkage, and both said he was their best results to date in dealing with sarcoma. So to "maintain" the improvement he started on Votrient. Was on it for a week and a half and BAM, the side effects kicked his butt! At the same time he developed a bad sore throat along with severe pain near the original tumor location. So now he's been off the Votrient for 5 days and has shown only slight improvement. He's had hallucinations, essentially eaten nothing, had to have saline and antibiotics by IV, and is still really out of it. Dr. wants to see him again on Friday, and restart a lower dose of the Votrient. Just wondering if anyone else has had this kind of reaction. We're considering just forgetting the Votrient; neither of us wants him to suffer the way he has the last few days. Any thoughts?
