So tomorrow is my 2nd opinion appt, I am almost ready.
I am putting together 4 packets (one for me, one for the Doc, one for my Aunt and one just in case) which contain.
Page 1 - med list
page 2 - Brief history of my disease(s)
page 3 - list of questions
also secondary packet of info on my kidney disease, stuff from the internet, that describes it and has a few pic's.
I am going into this as a patient and as executive of Beth, Inc., I would prepare this way for any other thing going on at work so I hope the Dr. is receptive to this and I am not wasting my time.
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
