Amen! Doctors and nurses often make a lot mistakes, they are professionals, but day in and day out they get to see so many patients! You can't expect them to remember everything you have told them or to check your entire medical file the first time you see said doctor. That is why I always tell the doctor the most important things, like for example what meds I'm on, what surgeries I've had, etc. I think it's also important to educate one self, specially when you are diagnosed with something chronic. I've learnt that doctors (some more than others) tend to miss the right diagnosis more than once. I don't trust the judgement of most of them, specially when it comes to CT scans and x-rays! Can you believe most doctors I've seen claim the ionizing radiation from a CT scan is minimal and poses no risk to develop cancer?
