Hey Tippy , Let me tell you what I go throughwhen I go for mydrs visit. I first see nurse, she takes BP, and checks temp. Askes how I have been felling? If I have had any diareaha ( and don't be embarrassed ) , night sweats , eating ok and takes my weight. She'll ask when last period was and when teeth and eyes were last checked. She records this infor. Then when I see the dr he checks my heart , listens to my lungs , will look in my mouth ( say awwww) and because I have Hep he will have me lay down and press on my liver area. You are still dressed . He will ask how your feeling . And that is the time you can ask questios with him And if you have any questions for the nurse ask her also when you are seeing her. It really is very simple. If your on meds he'll ask haow your feeling with them , . You can ask how your vl is and your t cells. If you have some things you want to talk to him about write them down and bring it with you.

Look up to the Heavens for the answers to Lifes questions .
