It is vitally important that you be open and honest with your doctor. When in doubt, ask questions, listen to the answers carefully and take notes. A prudent measure would be to write down your questions before your appointment, so that you do not forget important matters during the stress of consultation. Remember, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask! So, to re-emphasize, don't hesitate to ask questions! And if you don't understand the answers, the fault is not all yours; it could be that your doctor is not explaining the facts well!
