What can I expect now? There should be a “point person” that you have been referred to who is going to be your advocate as your mesothelioma treating physician. This is usually the person who is the expert on site for the disease and is either a medical oncologist, a surgeon, or a radiation oncologist. This individual usually has a track record of performing clinical trials for the disease and may even be involved in laboratory research in the disease. The first visit is going to be a whirlwind; this physician or someone on the staff will be taking a history from you, performing a physical examination, going over all the records you have, looking at your x-rays and CTs, and submitting your slides to the pathologist to give you a second opinion on the diagnosis.
Ask the doctor to speak in simple terms if you find the language too complex. If you have concerns about anything that is said, speak up and discuss these issues. Take the time to repeat back to the doctor what you heard so that he or she knows what information to reinforce and what to correct. Talk with your doctor about what your knowledge is of the disease and its treatment and any concerns and/or fears you may have. Try to have discussions in a quiet, private place so that you don’t become distracted.
This will provide you with a full health history of all your experiences right at your fingertips. If you have to see another doctor or specialist at some time in the future, you can bring a copy of your records with you so the doctor has a full understanding of your medical history. You should add to your files a list of the medications you are on and any side effects that may have occurred with them. Maintaining a sense of direction during this stressful time is imperative, and organization can help maintain that sense of direction.
