If You Are Having Hormonal Therapy

If You Are Having Hormonal Therapy

Questions for the doctor:

  • Why do I need this treatment?

  • What is the goal of the treatment?

  • What kind of hormonal therapy should I consider? 

  • When will treatment start? 

  • What drugs will I be taking? How often? For how long? What will they do?

  • How will we know if the treatment is working?

  • What are the likely short-term and long-term side effects? Which should I tell you about? 

  • What can I do about side effects? Are any side effects permanent?  

  • If I need hormonal treatment, would surgery be an alternative to this? Which would be better for me, drugs or an operation? Why?
