Making treatment decisions

Questions to ask your doctors

What does

each option require of me?

Many patients consider how each option will practically affect their lives. This information may be important

because you have family, jobs, and other duties to take care of. You may also be concerned about getting the

help you need. If you have more than one option, choosing the option that is the least taxing may be important

to you.

1. Will I have to go to the hospital or elsewhere? How many times? How long is each visit?

2. How do I prepare for treatment?

3. Should I bring someone with me when I get treated?

4. Will the treatment hurt?

5. How much will the treatment cost me?

6. Is home care after treatment needed? If yes, what type?

7. How soon will I be able to manage my own health?

8. When will I be able to return to my normal activities?
