I'm seeing my Breast Clinic Nurse on Tuesday for my cording, as my arm is getting quite painful, she feels I may need some physiotherapy,
I've since this post, had several emails from my contact in HR and she has reassured me, as you have said that it's just so they can see how i am doing and to see what they can do for me, so I do feel abit happier,
I'm going to see my doctors on Friday, I do not think I'm ready to go back to work, and the side effects from rads are hitting me hard and I need to get this sorted,
With regards to work it self, I'm 48 and I work, with such amazing people, the first time I went to see them, they had made me the most amazing "we miss you" card.
I thank you for your kind works, and reassurance
They have been supportive, I will just go in and see them, to give them the information they need.
But did say it would be best when I completed my treatment and seen the doctors so I can give them the most update.
Hope u have a speedy recovery
I had my op 2 wks ago, so I am on sick leave for 3wks. which runs out next week, luck for me I work in a school, so am on hols after that. Before I had my op, I gave copies of all my letters & appointments to the HR dept and in due course the headmaster was informed. I had a meeting with him and he assured me that there would be no problem with me having time off for treatment and future follow ups, plus also reduced hours if required. I also gave the HR dept, my eldest daug's details and told them she was going to be my main appoint of contact at all times and they were quite happy with that, as I did not want a stressful time by been pestered. Your workplace should be supporting you, one day it could be them that is going through cancer treatment.
im sorry to here are going through a rough time, I just thing they really don't appreciate how hard cancer is, unless you have experienced it yourself,
Hope u get better soon.
I do understand
But we just could do without, and they have to do their job.
I have a work colleague who had cancer and she couldn't believe it, but I do have a lot of support, so just trying to calm
Thank u for the reassurance
its just i could could do without added stress.
Im leaving them to contact me know, I've done what I can.
thank u again
I do totally understand, I'm going to leave it up to them now to contact me.
If will c how I feel when they want me to go in.
This journey is stressful enough without added pressure
i had my lumpectomy in May, had 4 lots of fluid removed due to seroma.
I'm currently very tired, red and itchy which I've been given hydrocortisone. Got cording which I'm doing my exercises and my husband is massaging it and I nearly go through the roof with pain.
started radiotherapy had 9 sessions, 6 to go.
Up to recently my work have been brill, I did call in two times one after I recovered from my op to say hello, the second time was quite recently again to say hello.
Ive now been advised that HR want me to call in for a Welfare chat, so I sent them an email with my current situation, so they said they think would be best for me to call in when my treatment was over.
Since then due to me worrying, I've sent emails called to sort this out, but so far not sure when I'm going.
Ive been keeping my boss updated weekly with my progress.
So do I really need to go and see HR, it's stressing me out, do they not believe me, yes I've not been off since May but I do have cancer.
sorry for the rant.
