Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.

Poly cystic Ovarian Disease is, as you well know, a complex gynecological problem demanding very specialist analysis, monitoring and treatment. Some of that treatment, in an ideal world, should include psychotherapeutic counselling and support to help your sister cope with this sometimes devastation condition.

I am not suggesting for one minute that you, as a medical doctor, do not process all the skills necessary to manage your sister's care. I would however advise that you reflect long and hard on what's required of you before you intervene.

There is also a second point here to be considered and this perhaps is even more important: In this part of the world anyway, doctor's are discouraged from taking on close relatives as patients. There are good reasons for this sound council. Down the road there may be tough decisions to be made regarding your sister's ongoing care. The quality of such decision making will hardly be enhanced by close emotional involvement. You need to think about this.

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
