Questions to ask your doctor
Ask questions so you understand your treatment options and can make decisions that are best for you.
Learn about the benefits and risks
Learn about your treatment options, including the possible benefits and risks. This may help answer some of your questions, and help you decide which treatment is right for you.
Tips for talking with your family and friends
Family members or close friends may also help you make treatment decisions. Here are some tips for talking to them:
- Talk about what you think is important about your treatment. For example, if you want to be treated at a center close to home or by a specific doctor.
- Talk about how they can help you make treatment decisions, and support you in your choices.
If you have a child who is ill, talk with your doctors or clinic social worker about ways you and other family members can get support as you’re making decisions. If your child is a teenager, ask for help involving them in treatment decisions.
Talk to others who have been through transplant
You and your caregiver may find that it’s helpful to hear about other patients’ experiences. Tell your doctor if this would help you make treatment decisions. Our Peer Connect program can connect you with a trained volunteer who’s been there. No matter where you’re at in the process, recipients and caregivers like you are available to talk by phone or email, sharing their experience and tips. Request a connection.
