Some surgeons and oncologists permit use of a dictator to record the mtg, I know my consultant did, might be worth asking?
Thankyou both for taking the time to reply. Unfortunately it wasn't good news and an op is planned in just over a week's time. The advice to listen and write was spot on as the information went over head once the word cancer was spoken.
I took a friend with me to get my results and after her initial gasp when we were told it was in fact BC, she kept her head down and wrote down everything that was said. Afterwards I picked up on the key points, but she kept hold of her notes so I could seek clarification later. Most of the questions I asked during the appt were in response to info given, and these and the replies were also written down for future reference .
So a notebook and a few pens will be very useful.
Very best wishes to you both
A close friend has had biopsies (16 in total) and is getting the results at the end of the week. She has been told to take someone with her as it can be hard to take in the information. I am going to support her, and while I can give emotional support as i know her really well I need to know I am covering all the bases in terms of getting the right infomration from professionals.
Can anyone give me advice please on what we need to know and what questions we should be asking?
