Like "Since I'm a widow now, that isn't an option for me, but if it's something new, like the EMG and nerve conduction study, I'll ask a friend or one of my daughters to come with me. I want an extra pair of ears in case I misinterpret what the Dr tells me or if my brain checks out after they give me the dx. Also, they might think of questions that I don't. When I had the first MRI on my back, I was misdiagnosed with a cancerous cyst on my spine. I was really frightened and asked my daughter to come with me to see the neurosurgeon. It turned out to NOT be a cancer, but I was still glad for the support. I've also been able to be the support for a friend when the situation has been reversed. We need to help each other this way."
