At Karyn's PCP visit, she went armed with a list of concerns and questions. Knowing that she probably wouldn't be able to discuss everything, she prioritized.
- when would she get an appointment to have her test redone to determine if her cancer was back?
- why did the Neurologist order an MRI, additional blood work and give her a medication without adequate information on what it was for, risks, benefits or side effects?
- could the dose on her medication be changed to provide better pain control?
So she didn't get to increase her med dose, didn't get out of having the tests, which is what she wanted. But maybe she got what she needed. We're certainly hoping so.
Count your blessings
