KatieB Posted May 29, 2012 Share Posted May 29, 2012 If you could help medical professionals understand how we feel, would you? Think back to when you were first diagnosed. For me, I received the information about my cancer over the phone, during a busy work day, where I worked taking customer service calls..... I was completely useless after that call and ended up almost losing my job (which I later quit btw) How were you diagnosed? Did your pulmonologist or GP or surgeon let you know? Were you alone or with family? Was it in person or over the phone? Looking back would you have changed anything about that moment you were given the news of your cancer? I think medical professionals should know what our thoughts are about this and maybe, just maybe, in providing them this insight, they will change the way they interact with the next patient.
