Hi, I just want to give you some moral support for your issue with the doctors anger.

I am dealing with the same problem with my mothers doctor. I have decided that I will ask any question I need to ask, I will demand answers and if I don't like something (for instance a certain medication), I will tell him. If he gets angry....then that's his problem.

You need to do what feels right for your mothers care and what your mother is happy for you to do. The doctors feelings, ego and emotions are not your problem, they are his problem. Please don't let him intimidate you into silence.

If you can start having friendly communication that is very good but if he still becomes defensive or angry, ignore his attitude and do whatever is best for all of you.

Being an advocate for someone you love is a long, hard, tiring process but you will see the benefits of being persistent.

Regards

Chirley
