My father lives in Iran and price of 120 Extandi pills for 1 month is equal to 13 months of the family living costs. Means hiis retirement income is one thirteenth of the price.
I can support him for 1 or max 2 months with my savings but that is it.
He is overall in good and normal health. He was responding to chemo in 6 month, then the doctor stopped chemo and now wants to switch him on something we can't afford.
No insurance in Iran cover this medicine.
The issue is that we don't know why he doesn't want to retry chemo, when it decreased his PSA from 98 to 17 in 6 months and seemed that it was working.
Do you think we need to talk to another oncologist?
I feel so guilty about
not being able to provide money for my father's crucial medication, this feeling is killing me as her daughter. My life looks like hell these days.
Please help and share your opinions. Thanks.
