I am undergoing treatment for Neuroendocrine Tumor since 19th November 2015. I am taking an injection, Sandostatin LAR 20mg, since 30th November 2015 every four weeks intervals. After taking 12 injections, I stopped it for 15 weeks according to doctor's advice. But restarted the same injection when I had loose motion. I have taken 18 injections so far. I am not taking any other medicines. My weight was only 67 kgs on 20th Nov. 2015, now my weight is 75 kgs. I have no health problems so far, I am following my normal life as other healthy guys
Please advise me how long should I take this expensive injection.
