If you're not getting information from this doctor- I would seek a new doctor. It's your right.

Before treatment began, a diagnosis had to be made. I don't understand why they aren't telling you more. Please take some time to write down your questions and get your doctor to sit down to go over anything. If you have a difficult doctor I'd request my medical records and read the diagnosis on your medical reports. Regardless of how you get the info, you need a medical team willing to communicate and partner with you to ensure your husband's best care

I hope you get some answers soon. Please keep us posted. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.
