Yes, my dr's are very good or should I say I don't let them forget. I
always have a lab rec on me to get tested whenever I feel the need. But
we have talked about after delivery we will test every 4 weeks unless I
start feeling really bad. Then I can test sooner. My regular dr leaves
it up to me. She says "you know how you feel."
Your idea with marker though, really good and I've heard of even a dr
doing that. He was to have surgery on his leg. So he wrote on the one
that was not to be touched "Not this leg" the other leg he wrote, "Cut
this leg" And yes I would consider it if I was going in for major
surgery I would write it on my arm so they wouldn't forget. It doesn't
hurt and it will wash off eventually. I think dr's should do this before
they wheel you down the hall.
