We have one family friend whose mother is going through chemo for triple negative. She has shared that initially she was advised 8 chemos with a cost of app 12,000/- She has completed 6 cycles - but now she is adivsed by her doctors that the next cycles will cost her 75000/- each with 6 cycles more - when asked the reason - it is informed 75000/- chemo will be less painful.
Doctor is there anything difference or justification why it is so? Even to my sister the doctor has advised to come at meet after her 3rd chemo. Again tense whether we will be asked for the same treatment. At present we are paying app 21000/- for each chemo cycle (including the medicines/tablets) which is given for 5 days
My sister is taking FEC90 - is advised 6 chemo cycles out of which 2 completed. Is that her cycles will increase? What is the reason for increasing the cycles and cost .
