Good morning everyone!
I have my 1st appointment with my oncologist/hematologist since being diagnosed with CLL/SLL. Can anyone tell me what I should expect for that discussion and if I should plan to take the day off of work?
Thanks in advance and have a blessed day on purpose!
My first talk after diagnosis was about treatment and how long I had. That was 5 years ago next month. It all depends on how far along you are and if you require treatment or if you are a watch and wait.
Following is a link that you may find helpful. In regards to taking the day off from work..I did 6 years ago when I was diagnosed..I didn't want to feel rushed at the appointment and it helped not to go back to work that day. Lots of information to absorb, etc. Keep in mind as well..to not let oncologist rush you or be evasive with your questions. I also took my questions with me and wrote down the answers. Best of luck and let us know how it all turns out.
Good news Theresa! Enjoy your weekend:):)
On my first appointment I had to have blood test couple of days before..just felt for any nodes all ok just watch and wait...
