I truly want them to learn from this, but I don’t know how to put this to them delicately. I had a previous experience where I got 2nd and 3rd opinions and when I went back to the original doc with what happened, it did not end well. At all.

It means a great deal to me to keep them & our relationship, enough so that I’m concerned about that as I am these test results that are worsening faster than expected.
