Hi there! I'm going to go against the current tide a little and say I'd plan on getting some help occassionaly. My hospital is different in that we aren't to have company in chemo ward but they do advise someone drives you on those days. So I'll be driven in and out on those days even though it's a pest for husband as we're about 40 mins away too in good traffic. I plan to drive myself as much as possible on radiotherapy days but also have been told by my nurses that this may be too much towards the end of the plan. However these days are better for a driver anyway as they are shorter.
so you do whatever is best for you but I'm basically saying don't worry about setting it all in stone just right now and be aware that your feelings could change throughout this.
Im just starting mine this week and already someone made me feel less than as chatting in waiting area and she was talking about how someone she knew worked through it all. Made me feel rubbish until I remembered I'm two surgeries down and heading into this. It's so hard to not feel like you've got to be superwoman. But all we need to do is get through this bit as well as we can.
you know yourself best so do what's best for you and try and not compare. and if you are superwoman take it easy on the rest of us who are just trying to get through ;-) good luck!l
