Others can chime in. Especially TA. But I have heard very good things about Heidelberg. I have a friend that got treatment there.

Hi Is it possible to give an indication of how much for LU177?

AC-225 also. LU-177 by itself may not be enough.

Dr Haberkorn ( head of radiation department ) Dr. Kratochwil ( senior physician ).

Call international office +49 (0) 6891-9000 2223.

I paid about 10,000 Euros at the hospital each time. Add in flight to Frankfort transportation to and from Frankfort to Heidelberg about a one hour autobahn ride at 140 kilometers per hour or more depending on the traffic. Overnight lodging and food. My daughter went with me. Note I was in the wheel chair with a PSA of as high as 750. Cancer to Sternen , lymph nodes and the prostate. 1/21/2023 PSA <0.04. No ADT for 27 months. You spend two days confined at the hospital. At the US airport they will pick up your radiation detection and find you, confine you and then call Washington to get permission to release you . Kept about 1.5 hours for this to end then you are released. customs did all four times.

Another option is hospitals in India. There are some excellent facilities there, and the cost tends to be lower.

Dr at Fortis. The name is I Dr. Sen. I may be speaking with her while I am here In India. It was $20,000.00 USD for three treatments.

Perhaps research treatment in Australia too. Aus dollar worth 70% of US dollar. No facility would dare quote rates in US dollars here in Australia methinks.🌻
