I didn't mention it to the doctor during that visit (it was my first and only time seeing this particular specialist). But I did write about it on the questionnair that had to be filled out, and I also mentioned it to the module receptionist. She told me it was routine to send the package out to everyone prior to their first visit to the cancer centre. I told her how upsetting it had been to receive it before hearing the pathology results, and she was quite receptive and interested in that perspective. I don't know if it will change the policy, but this cancer centre is quite renowned for their constant endeavors to make the whole process as caring and stressfree as possible, so maybe it will help somewhere down the road.
When you don't like a thing, change it.
If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
