I am going to my 1st appointment with a surgeon and I need help with some questions I should be asking. I'm very nervous and just can't think right now. Actually, I'm scared too death.



  • Thanks so much for the link. I will pull it up and take a look.

    Thanks again,

  • Darby,

    I just had my first visit with my surgeon a couple of weeks ago. I was the same way, I was very nervous the days before my visit. If you can take someone with you to help take notes, I forgot much of what my surgeon said but my wife took notes. You may want to take a recorder with you and ask if you can use it for your visit.

    Good luck with things and keep us informed. Feel free to check out the chat on this site, its a good group of people that will help you with what to expect.
  • Thanks for mentioning taking someone along, even on the first appointment. I was considering going to the initial consult alone, but then taking someone with me on subsequent appointments (if surgery is suggested). But it sounds like you received a lot of information even for the initial appointment. I definitely need help with remembering everything, so I will be sure to bring someone to my first appointment.
