Thank you for your query at
This clinical scenario is a proven recurrence which is designated as metastases. This requires systemic chemotherapy (along with or without a monoclonal antibody called cetuximab, based on your affordability as this drug costs about 1 lac every week, but has excellent results).
Based on the response further treatment should be planned .
Kindly revert back in case of queries.

Patient replied :

Doctor, kindly let me know how many weeks of treatment with nonoclonal antibody is required to work out affordability.
Thanking you

I am practicing medical oncology in chennai and based on general Indian affordability , a weekly schedule of 6 months will be ideal.. I can schedule for certain concession also to minimize financial burden.

Patient replied :

Doctor how much would that concessional rate work out. Is there a need to get hospitalised in your hospital in Chennai or would it be enough to come there as and when required

Chemo is on fortnightly basis costing about 15k.
Bio therapy costs about 96000 on weekly basis.
Above are drug costs only. If you can travel frequently, it would be fine. Else rental monthly accommodation will be about 10 to 12 k per month for a good 2 BHK flat.
