Treatment and Tests

Having Treatment or Tests can be scary. It's normal to feel that way. Asking lots of questions will help you to feel better. Never be afraid or embarrassed to ask questions. Some you might like to ask are:
  • Will it be painful?
  • How many treatments will I get?
  • Will I miss any school?
  • Will I be able to play sports, play a musical instrument, try out for the school play, or participate in other activities I love?
  • What can I expect — will my condition be cured? Will my symptoms go away?
  • What are the side effects of the treatments/tests and how long will they last?
  • Will these treatments/tests make me sleepy, grumpy, or weak?
  • What happens if I miss a treatment or forget to take my medicine?
  • What if the treatments don't work?
