Do not hesitate to share your thoughts with your doctor. If you think what he is recommending does not make sense, say so, and specify your reasons. If you're worried, do express your anxieties and find out how you can get more information and support to dispel them. If you just sit on your chair and listen meekly, your doctor will either assume that you are uninterested in a full explanation of your illness and its treatment - or that you are too stupid to understand! Remember - the more you ask, the more you will be told!
