You will meet regularly with your oncologist throughout your treatment.  It’s important to feel comfortable talking with your oncologist about your treatment options (and their possible benefits and risks), your quality of life and how you are doing emotionally.  Other health care providers, especially your nurses, can discuss these things with you too.  You’re processing a lot of information and dealing with many emotions.  You may feel overwhelmed and unsure of what questions to ask your oncologist, nurse or other providers.  It may be helpful to download and print Susan G. Komen’s Questions to Ask Your Doctor card on metastatic breast cancer and take it with you to your next doctor’s appointment.  You can also download other Questions to Ask Your Doctor cards on many different breast cancer topics.
