My husband is 74 years of age and was diagnosed with bilaterial renal cell carcinoma that has spread to the left flank and the spine, L4 already has some some fractures. He also has a tumor measuring 3.0 by 4.0 on the right lower anterior chest wall. This was all diagnosed June 2004 during a CT scan done for backache. After a biopsy was done on the left kidney and all this was confirmed he tood 14 radiation treatments on the spine. Also he is getting inteferon shots 3 days a week. The doctor said no to kidney removal since it is in both. I am so afraid it has gone too far because it is in stage 4. He has vascular problems, had open heart surgery. Anyone know of any other treatments out there that might work. I pray for him all the time. All his bloodwork comes back normal, thank God.I pray for all of you, May God Bless. Thank You, Nell
