Re: Unpaid work in Spain, but monthly treatment needed

y oncologist aranged for me to store denosumab at home and do my own injections - I got a sharps bin and needles from the chemo ward nurses and store the denosumab in my fridge - you may be able to ask for the same?

Unpaid work in Spain, but monthly treatment needed

Hi lovelies,

I've not had the happiest of marriages, and surprisingly, since my secondary diagnosis, my husband has been worse than ever. I walked out recently, but circumstances forced me back. During my absence I registered with an agency to do unpaid work abroad in return for board etc.

I'm 59, but was surprised to get an offer of a place, in Spain, easy very part-time work, helping with homework etc, for 6 mrhs, I'm an ex teacher.

I'm now in a dilemma re my treatment. I think I can get tablets for this length of time, but I have a mthly injection of denosumab, which is stored cold, and I'm unsure if I could get this without paying big money privately in Spain.

Any ideas welcome. It's a great opportunity for me, being in pretty good health re bc. My arthritis is my main problem. I also need to feel useful again. And thrive in the sun.

I won't deny it's an escape route, but also an exciting life change at a time when stuff looks pretty bleak at home.

Appreciate your help.

Imac
