Hi peedles, when i got my results, i wasnt sure whether to go back to work while im waiting for radio theraphy, i work fulltime, and i cycle 2 miles to work at 530 in the morning, and part of my job is lifting heavy bags of money, because i felt ok in myself i felt like i was letting work down, spoke to my bn as she said although i might feel ok internally it will take 6 weeks to heal, so i decided to stay home , i dont no why i worry lol, ive worked for the company 23 years and can count my sick days up on my hands lol, i guess we just all want the normality back in our lifes.
So glad you had the results you wanted, im going to see about my rads 31rst to find out when and how many sessions
That is great news, onwards and upwards now 🙂
I worked throughout my rads, but I was only allowed to 3 days a week and 4 hours a day, which my employer kept me to until 4 weeks after I finished them.
Because I am a carer for my partner who has MS and my place of work was halfway between home and the hospital (QE Birmingham), I was able to arrange for my sessions on Mon-Wed to be straight after work around 1ish. This then gave me that ability to do what I needed to in the early evening and then rest. My boss made me promise that if I found it too much I was to say and that it would be reviewed, but I was ok. The job I do is office based and is not at all stressful so that might be worth bearing in mind as to how that would affect you if yours is otherwise.
Not surprised you are fed up Peedles, it's the blooming waiting that gets us down. Got my fingers crossed that you are now feeling a bit better. Sending a big hug. X
I remember when I had my op, my bcn said that they would not call me in until they had all the results in rather than have to ask me come in if some were back and not others because they wanted to be able to give me the whole picture. The MDT met on a Wednesday and all my appointments were on a Thursday.
Oh dear. I wonder if they realise how these delays bring us crashing down? When did they do the lumpectomy? Mine was a week ago today, and I am supposed to get my results tomorrow. I do hope you get yours soon.
