Hi just wanted to say how much it helped reading your reply to this. I am having #7 of 8 chemo treatments next week. I was determined to work through my treatment but after the first one was hospitalised with infection and have been unable to work since. I have been feeling like such a let down, and so guilty about being unable to work. Whilst I am sorry to hear your experience had been similar to mine. It's good to know I'm not the only one. So many other people seem to cope with the chemo better than I have. My oncologist says I have had a particularly bad reaction, but I still feel like a total let down to my employer and my husband. At the end of my chemo I have mastectomy surgery and radiotherapy so my return to work will be some time away yet. I still can shake this feeling of uselessness .
