lsaut Posted December 4, 2015 Share Posted December 4, 2015 Meeting with an oncologist next week for the first time... I'm compiling a list of questions to ask, but want to make sure I don't miss any important details for my step dad... in no particular order: 1. Pain management options 2. Can we have care transferred closer to home (current cancer centre is 3 hours away)? 3. What type of lung cancer, stage, mets? 4. Available treatment options? What would doctor recommend? Side effects of treatment? 5. Can we get a copy of pathology report? 6. What is the goal of treatment? Palliative care? 7. What to expect next? 8. Special precautions as a diabetic? 9. When to go the hospital or call doctor? 10. How will progression be monitored? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
