There is a kidney cancer forum both on this site and on www.SmartPatients.com .  I am a 12 year survivor of kidney cancer, with the tumor and kidney removed, and with 100s of mets in my lungs.  I was sent into a high dose interleukin2 program HD IL2, at UCLA, which required about 4 weeks of treatment in the hospital.  I have been clear of kidney cancer ever since.  And I have not taken any kidney cancer meds since,  all explained on my blog at www.peggyRCC.com .

I would be concerned about the night sweats, and wonder how the doctor explains that.  I had night sweats before my surgery, and was told that was typical, but not heard of it after the surgery.
