Have You Obtained a Second Opinion Regarding Your PH Treatment?
PH is complicated to treat, which is no secret. The biggest obstacle, I think, is that we respond differently to the treatments. But, if your PH team suggests something you are unsure of, do you reach out to another PH doctor for a second opinion?
With my recent issues with Adempas, I sought out a second opinion. I contacted my previous PH specialist that took care of me for 10 years. He is more like a friend now, so we chatted, and he offered his suggestion. Once I heard his suggestion, we decided to try Adempas at half the dose for a week or two.
For me, it gave me more confidence in making the decision. He also reminded me that no decision is set in stone, and I could change my mind if this continues to be more hassle than good.
Have you in the past thought about or obtained a second opinion for PH? If so, how did it go?
