It can be daunting being told you have a chronic illness, and suddenly having to take in a lot of information at once. Here are some questions you might like to ask your doctor about your illness and treatment:
  • What is my diagnosis?
  • Where is the disease active?
  • What form does the disease take (inflammation, ulcers, fistulas)
  • How severe would you say my disease was?
  • What symptoms do I need to report immediately to you, which can wait until my scheduled appointment, and which signify an emergency?
  • What treatment options are open to me?
  • What does (treatment) do? What side effects should I be aware of?
  • How long before I should see an improvement?
  • Do I need to take any nutritional supplements such as b12 or iron?
