About this blog

I have shared with you Ryan’s lymphoma journey we talked about the ups, the downs, the protocols for drugs, the side effects, but I realised recently I’ve never shared the questions. This post is all about what to ask when you receive a diagnosis of cancer.
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is never ever going to be seen as good news. It can never be dressed up or made pretty. It is devastating, it is gut-wrenching, it is life-changing. There is so much information to process you won’t even think of the questions necessarily or you will have hundreds of questions you want to ask all at once. These are just some of the questions you can ask once you have processed the news, in order to gain a better understanding of your fight ahead.
These are a lot of question, I know. Many of them will be answered as part of your consultation with your consultant(s). I would suggest however you print these off and have them with you for several appointments as you will need to go over information as you have a chance to process all the new jargon and guidance you are being given. I have listed on a separate page at the top some specific questions I asked about Ryan’s particular type of Cancer. They are quite in depth so may well not be appropriate to your situation, but they are there for you to look at of so wish to do so and you can reword them to suit if the above questions do not answer all of your queries.
