You will meet with the care team (physicians, CF care coordinator, nurses, respiratory therapists, nutritionist, and social worker) who will explain the condition, map out a CF care strategy, and discuss resources. Here are some questions to consider when talking to your doctor about your diagnosis, as well as trying to manage the disease throughout your lifetime.
- Can my child with CF be around another child with CF?
- Can a lung transplant cure CF?
- What medication does my child need and are there any side-effects?
- Do people with CF need their treatment daily or can they skip days?
