I have the best way to figure out what the doctor is thinking is to ask him. I know at times we tend to be a little reluctant to ask questions at the rsik of sounding stupid, or maybe we don't even want to know.
I have become bolder in my approach. I also am not shy abput giving my opinion on his decsions. I believe it is good to challenge once in a while, and I hate gping home and having my wife ask " Why is he doing that ?", and I must respond "I don't know ".
Sounds as tho you have a good doctor who is on top of what is going on. I would say a .3 calls for some more immediate action.
Good luck. We will wait to hear what the CT scan showed, (if anything )
