If you have a medical appointment, it is always a good idea to write down any questions you have beforehand or take a friend or relative with you for support.
When it comes to your health every question you have is important and any questions you have you should be asked. It is also helpful to bring someone with you when attending appointments, this person may remember details that you forgot. Another useful tip is to write down any questions you have beforehand.
Some common questions include:
• What does this mean?
• What happens now?
• Will I need treatment?
• What can I do to keep myself healthy?
• How do I keep from passing it on?
If you don't understand something, don't be afraid to ask for it to explained again. Its your health, so make sure you are completely clear of what is being said to you about your health.
