When can you request a Second Opinion?

 Many people hesitate to ask for a second medical opinion. However, in some situations, especially when it comes to rare or complicated conditions, the opinion of another doctor or a doctor specializing in pathology can completely change the diagnosis, treatment methods, and the patient’s therapeutic pathway and outcomes. In any situation, a confirmation of the diagnosis received or a new, modern, more accessible or advantageous therapeutic pathway could change a difficult situation in your favor.

 

When is a second medical opinion needed?

 * You have been treated, but symptoms continue – when symptoms do not improve or worsen despite treatment, another doctor’s opinion may be needed. Medical treatment should relieve or eliminate symptoms and improve quality of life.

* You feel unsure about the diagnosis – regardless of the diagnosis, you may simply feel unsure. It’s important to get a “second medical opinion” to give you certainty and confidence, to get clarity and clarification to allay your concerns.

* You have been diagnosed with a complex pathology – endometriosis, especially the most advanced type of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE), bowel endometriosis, bladder endometriosis, sacral root endometriosis – a condition having a greater risk of being misdiagnosed and sub-optimal treated. A center specializing in this disease can help you find out the best therapeutic solution through a multidisciplinary approach in a personalized manner.

* You have been offered a risky surgical treatment or one that has long-term consequences – don’t agree to surgery before weighing up other available treatment methods. Surgery is a responsible decision that can have long-term effects.
