Making your own decisions

Often the doctor will offer you options as to what your treatment choices are, and allow you to make your own decision. This can be very hard to do - and very scary as well - suppose you make the wrong decision ? I always tell my patients that it's fine to make their own decisions - they should not be scared to do so. After all, they have made critically important decisions easrlier as well ! Since they need to live with the consequences of their decision, it's best they make it themselves, rather than abdicate this responsibility to someone else. I also assure them that I will never let them make a wrong decision - that's my responsibility ! But when there are choices, you have to choose for yourself !
