apoe 4 - do I tell him?
quote:Originally posted by biccoastal:It sounds like your husband could get more information if he wanted it. Surely the doctor would tell him directly if he expressed an interest. My instinct would be to answer his questions honestly but not go out of my way to open the issue.My husband has seen and heard the test results but somehow interprets them as mistaken or irrelevant. I tried explaining to him but he shrugs it off so now I let it go.
