Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia (COP)

Making notes before your visit, as well as taking along a trusted family member or friend, can help you through the first appointment with your doctor.

  • Do I have COP?
  • What tests will I need?
  • What are the symptoms related to my COP?
  • Does COP only affect the lungs?
  • What is the treatment suggested for my COP?
  • Is it necessary to be admitted to hospital for appropriate care, or is it possible to be treated at home?
  • What is my change of relapsing?
  • Are there alternative treatments if the first treatment fails?
  • Are there any complications that I might expect from the COP or its treatment?
