Whether you are dealing with a suspicion, diagnosis, or coping with the side effects of treatment, it is important to know what questions to ask your GP or specialist so as to best equip yourself in the prevention, management and treatment of bowel cancer.
Exploring the emotional and physical side effects of treatments will give you some insight into potential issues before they occur. Although managing and living with these side effects may be difficult, at least you will be aware and informed should they occur.
Ensure that all your concerns and questions, no matter how small, have been addressed. Ask whatever you feel is important to get the information you need right now. The more information you have about bowel cancer and regular communication with your specialist are vital in helping you make informed decisions about your health care.
