Make a ListThe first thing most doctors will ask a brain tumor patient is "What are your symptoms?" and "How long have you been experiencing them?" My advice? Make a list, with as many dates as you can remember. Bring the list to your first few doctors' appointments. This way, you'll avoid giving incorrect dates and information, and you'll keep everything organized. And don't worry; your list will soon become obsolete. One thing you'll come to learn about good teams of doctors is how well they share information. Soon, they'll be telling you all about your symptoms and associated dates. You'll sit down, and right away, it’s "You've been feeling this and this since three months ago, correct?" Which is a big help, because having to go over the same information time and again can be tedious.
So, in summary, make a list. Do it early. And bring it with you to all your early appointments. Don't leave anything out either, no matter how minor it may seem. You can even make a couple of copies for your doctors. And remember to print clearly.
