Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello! Please remember that my response is for information only, we are not establishing a therapeutic relationship.
Is there any reason you just haven't gone to a different Psychologist or Psychiatrist now that you are not in the hospital?
There should not be a reluctance of the second doctor to disagree with the first.
I suggest that you see a Psychologist (rather than a Psychiatrist) and have a full Personality Assessment completed. Psychologists tend to do more comprehensive testing, including standardized personality assessments rather than just a clinical interview like a Psychiatrist does. The Psychologist can write a comprehensive report that you can use where you need to with regards XXXXX XXXXX transplant.
The concern here is regarding post-transplant care and how you will fare with that. Time is in your favor here too. A solid comprehensive evaluation and report that is current, is going to be far more valuable than a report/notes from the past.
Please follow up if you need to --especially if you still have doubts that this will help.
