He was nice enough to talk to us today and explained that doctors have a therapeutic privilege (?). That basically means that doctors have the right to not disclose certain information to patients if they think that the information could pose serious and immediate harm to the patient, such as prompting suicidal behavior. I can understand that. Hearing that you have bone cancer and you're going to die soon and there's nothing they can do about it would have been devastating to my GGM, so I understand why he would think it was better to not tell her. Hell, we haven't even told her yet, how do you tell somebody something like that? I still wish there could've been some way that the family could've known what was going on.Answer Question
