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? How do you know?
  • How serious is my diagnosis?
  • What tests will I need?
  • Does COP only affect the lungs?
  • What is the treatment suggested for my COP? Are there any side effects?
  • What is my chance 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?
