Reviews for Radium 223 dichloride
"One should think twice for radium 223. My husband suffered from prostate cancer. Dr advised him for xofigo and that was disaster he was cancer patient had cancer on his bone. But he was active after first injection he stops eating food and lost 20 pounds in two weeks I spoke to Dr. Told him my concern he said he'll be fine. Ask him does this medicine has side effects he said no side effects I so I relaxed and he got his second injection. In second week that was disaster his liver compromised damaged 80% that happened so fast and he left us in third weeks . That is very, very, sad made my life empty."
