Questions to Ask About Treatment for Soft Tissue Sarcoma
At first, the information you learn about treatment options may seem overwhelming. You may ease the stress by allowing yourself the time to gather as much information as possible about the cancer and its treatment. That way, you can discuss the issues with your doctors, nurses, and loved ones. In most instances, taking a few days to make a thoughtful decision about your treatment will not make a difference in your ability to be cured of the sarcoma.
You may find it helpful to make a list of your questions before seeing your doctor. To make it easier to remember what your doctor says, take notes during meetings or ask if you can use a tape recorder. It may also help to have a family member or friend with you to take part in the discussion, take notes, or just listen. Use the list of questions below as a starting place for the questions you might ask.
