It would seem that I should know, but I was wondering what types of questions do you go prepared to ask your oncologist when you have follow-up appointments? I have just begun the three-month cycle. This time I did not have to have any tests ahead of time; next time, I will have to have had blood work and a CT scan.
What kinds of things do any of you ask about? I sometimes feel that I do not get my time/money's worth when I see my oncologist, but that is my fault. I rarely have much to say or ask about.
Tomorrow morning I see my oncologist. Since I last saw him I have gotten my port out and have met with my surgeon as well as radiation oncologist. I have also gotten caught back up with my regular med people (and had reports sent from there to my oncologist and radiation oncologist). My hair is back to just about what it was before I lost it to chemo. (I wear my hair somewhat short, but not terribly so.)
I am not apprehensive about tomorrow, as there are no test results to discuss.
