Please see detailed answer.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting on HCM,
Have seen reports.

One injection every week for 6-8 weeks would be given then for couple of months you would be under observation if required again a cycle would be repeated.
No one can tell you perfect time for full recovery because normally it could take upto 10 injections a year however recovery depends from person to person.

Generally treatment is effective in 60-70% of cases.
Cost of therwpy would be almost 2500 rupees per injection.

A CT brain and Echo heart can be done to rule out possibility of any thrombus.

Thanks!
