I don’t feel my doctor listens to my side effect concerns—any advice?

      Consider scheduling a dedicated appointment to discuss your concerns in detail!!! It’s so important

      My oncologist doesn’t believe chemo or cml causes pain. Luckily my primary does, and he’s willing to treat it. Just started going to a pain clinic too.

        @Penguinlady mine thinks that since I'm technically in remission that I shouldn't have pain anymore. And he definitely doesn't think the tasigna causes pain even tho it's a listed side effects. I like him so I over look that about him, but I'll have to talk to my primary and see what she says

      Just stand your ground and keep advocating for yourself. If they don't listen you can go to the office manager to switch doctors. You have to stand up for yourself. I've had 2 doctors who believed me, but my current doctor barely listens to me. Unfortunately it's a battle, but don't let them run you over. You got this!
