hi.. my uncle has APUDOMAS , a neuroendocrine tumour... he had undergone targeted treatment with 200 mci Lithium Dotatate... after that he had psychosis because of increased ammonia... now he is fine within 7 days... so i want to ask that it is safer to do same treatment after 3 months or not??/ please reply... thanks...
Depending on the stage of the tumor, the nuclear physician will explain to you rather there are more benefits from a second dose or more harm. Without knowing the stage we can not say how dangerous it may be.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
