    Work Closely With Your Doctor - Learn All You Can From Your Doctor

    In the hospital

    Being in the hospital can be even more stressful than an office visit. And stress makes it even harder to process information.

    If you think of questions when the doctor isn't there, write them down so that you can remember to ask them. This is important because your doctor may come by only once a day. Any questions you forget to ask might have to wait until the next day.

    It can also help to have a friend or family member in the room when you expect your doctor or another provider to visit. This person can help you remember things you wanted to ask and may think of questions you haven't thought of.
