    Talk to your physician - openly!

    To recover again, you have to understand exactly what you need, which treatment options exist and how promising they are. If there are various appropriate therapy options, please discuss openly with your physician which therapy will best suit your requirements. Important: The discussion between physician and patient is no one-way street! Please say everything that is on your mind. This includes discomfort, past medical history, living conditions and drugs you are taking. And: Please put all questions you have. Here are some examples:

    • What is a health problem?
    • What are the causes of my disease?
    • What must be done now?
    • What treatment options are there?
    • What will happen, if I do nothing at all for now?
    • Which advantages and risks do the appropriate therapy options have (“wait and see” included)?
    • How likely are the advantages or risks to occur?

    You and the physician will decide on the further steps to be taken in order to cure your disease.
