When I left the hospital, I was given a list of doctors that had been assigned to me. I never thought to do research and find the best oncologist and GI doctors. In addition, whatever they told me, I never questioned. When I did start to question things, I was told that I was overreacting! Don’t be afraid to question your doctors, challenge them, and even get a second opinion. Read the book When Doctors Don’t Listen by Leana Wen, M.D., for great information about how to avoid a misdiagnosis.
