I have been receiving treatment for thyroid cancer for the past 3 years. After I ran out of options, I begged my doctor to give me 50mg sutent. This is my 5th day on sutent, the side effect i'm having is fatigue, muscle pain and the worst is I am in pain in all the places that have cancer in my body, I cannot walk without using the walker. There are times i wish i can die, i can't endure this pain anymore, what should i do?
