How To Cope With Waiting For An Appointment Or Test Results

Research your condition if it helps.

Next » « Previous


For some people, researching information about the possible results and potential helps get through a waiting period. The research can make you more prepared to discuss the results when you get them. On the other hand, for other people, the nightmarish things that could happen because they have happened to a small minority of people can make the waiting worse.

Think about how you relate to "what ifs" before you engage in research at this point. It is unlikely that you will have to make an immediate decision if the results you're waiting for aren't positive. You'll likely have time to do the research then, when the facts are known. At that point, your doctor can help direct your research to information that applies to your situation rather than the "what ifs."
