What to ask the Dr?

December 2, 2009 in Uncategorized

Hey guys. Great news - The specialist called Chris last week to let him know they had an opening this Friday. So, here is where I need your help. This is going to be our first time seeing the doctor and the wait has been significant. I can't remember all of the things I wanted to ask the doctor and I was hoping you all could give me some suggestions for good questions to ask. I really appreciate all of your help and support. And of course, I'll let you know how the appointment goes on Friday!

    Hey first of all good luck with the doctors appointment. My suggestion is to look back on the blogs/questions on the forum that you posted on PKU.com. Sometimes it is nice to just ask your doctor some questions that you have already got answers to, so you can get another opinion. Be sure that you understand how much formula, phe, Kuvan etc he is suppose to be having each day. Ask the doctor what foods should be avoided. Find out where, when, and how your husband can have his blood tests done to monitor his phe levels. In the end it really depends on what you and your husband want to know or feel the need to know. Try to write down a few questions, so you do not forget them at the doctors, and then just ask the questions that pop into your head :).

    I agree with Brea. If you can recollect those questions posted on here, please re-post them…. And def bring in a list of questions for the doctor appointment. I can’t wait to hear all about your trip to the doctor!
