After Your Diagnosis

After receiving a diagnosis of a brain tumour, which can be a great shock, your brain either can freeze or go in to overdrive. Here are some ideas of questions you may want to ask when you next see your medical team. It is a good idea to take someone with you, as different people hear different things from the same conversation. You may also tape any conversation as long as you tell the doctor you are doing so.
