Indonesian living in Singapore: Lung Cancer Stage 4
My grandfather was recently diagnosed with stage 4 adenocarcinoma with metastasis of the lung on 11 March 2013.
He went for his first chemotherapy on 28 March 2013.
Please help advise for complementary or supplementary treatment from you. The Dr confirmed his condition is incurable. 6 cycles of chemo is scheduled for him.
Your advise please. MANY THANKS.

Good morning Sir,
We live in Singapore. Where do we go to see/meet you? Does my granddad need to come along?
Thank you very much. .Best regards.
Comments: Surprising. The next day patient and his family flew in to see us. He his first chemo with Carboplatin + Alimta + Avastin. This cost about S$17,000 per cycle. That is about RM 42,000 per treatment. The sad this is – he suffered badly and did not want to proceed further with the remaining 5 cycles. On top of it all – the doctor said this CANNOT cure him.
