Default Re: Clinic visit

During a clinic visit in March 2011, when my hubby asked one of the RNs, she said that he has about one year , plus or minus a few months, to live. Hubby is still here.
One thing I will emphasize though, you have to be absolutely honest with your answers to their questions about your symptoms. They use the test results and what you say to come up with whatever recommendations, etc. I think in my hubby's case he was not always forthcoming with his answers. So the nurse based her comment on what she thought was a sudden rapid decline, at least that is what I think happened at that time.
Good luck with your visit.
