Bring an advocate with you to medical appointments if you need support or help with comprehension in the conversation with your doctor. Also, that person can advocate for you and ask questions that you may not think to ask. An advocate can also help you organize your medical records and take notes. A professional advocate will be able to look over your lab reports, other medical records, and previous notes in order to formulate important questions.
