Is your doctor PROACTIVE or REACTIVE?

The adjective proactive can describe a person who gets things done. If you are proactive, you make things happen, instead of waiting for them to happen to you. Active means "doing something." The prefix pro- means "before." So if you are proactive, you are ready before something happens. The opposite is being reactive, or waiting for things to unfold before responding. To be reactive is to be ready to react or respond to something else.-- as apposed to ready to act on one's own. A person who's reactive does things only in response to others. Think about winter cold season. A proactive person washes his hands and takes vitamins; a reactive person gets sick and takes cold medicine.
Keeping the definitions of proactive and reactive in mind you should ask yourself while meeting with your doctor or after meeting with him or her which one he or she is. For example does your doctor use the word "when?" It would sound something like this: "We will do this treatment then when it comes back we will try this one." What I hear from patients and their families way to often is that the doctor tells them that the first treatment will be the standard of care and when (the word I was talking about) it comes back we will d somthing different. That indicates to me that the doctor is already residing him or herself to the fact that the cancer or tumor will return and he or she isn't doing enough to give you the best chance of it not coming back. You might be saying to yourself that you have been told that there is 100% chance of the tumor or cancer will return, but I am here to tell you that everyone is different and that is not always the case. You can't believe that. Another way to tell if your doctor is proactive or reactive is whether or not the doctor gives you choices of different treatment options. Different treatment methods offer different options for how aggressive you want to be. Do you want to start with the standard of care, sometimes called "The Gold Standard?" Or do you want to be very aggressive and hit it with everything that medicine has to offer to give you the best chance of it not coming back. The choice on how aggressive you want to be is ultimately yours. Remember it's your life!
My doctors were very proactive and gave mell all the options on how aggressive I wanted to be so that I could make an informed and educated decision. My options started with surgery. My doctors gave me three options. The first was to do nothing and enjoy a good quality of life for the time I had left. The second was to have surgery, radiation and temodar then continue with the standard of care. The third was to have surgery, which included a treatment after the tumor was resected, radiation and temodar then a cocktail approach using Carboplatin administered intra-arterially in conjuction with Cytoxin and Etoposide given through a port in my chest. Stay tuned for the choice I ultimately made.
