Questions for the doctor
« on: August 06, 2013, 03:13:42 PM »
I've got a list of questions I want to ask at my appointment, just wondering if there is any anyone would add that they found useful, and also if anyone can answer any as I am already imagining having a lot of information to take in tomorrow.

  • How often will i be monitored?
  • IS there anything i can do day to day to help my health
  • What happens about any forms of treatment
  • Is there anything i can do day to day to help my health
  • Maybe asking quite soon, but I'd rather know out of the way; what is and isn't safe sex wise
  • Any reason for anything like my diet to need to change
  • Is there any reason anything may effect my uni course
  • Any limitation to my physical activity

zig-zag, I think those are all valid questions for your doctor. I think I have answers to 7 and 8, and that is No and No! It will have to be at your comfort level, but the only limitations are your own. If (and that's IF!) you start meds and BY CHANCE have any side effects, you may need to adjust your schedule, but students do that  a few times a year, no? Listen to your body, and feed it and rest it when you need to.
