Depending on the complexity of your case there will likely be questions you only think of later. Information provided in leaflets can often lack sufficient detail, whilst the internet has many research papers that are hard to follow, with complex medical terminology. You may also encounter conflicting advice or opinions from older outdated medical sites and research papers.
