im new around here and this is my first ever forum post ever.
im recently diagnosed and luckily everything seems to be moving along quickly for me. Yesterday I had my patient registration at the Marsden and I've been given a date for my radical trachelectomy, 16th October. What I'm really worried about right now is being at work. I'm a head chef, my job is quite physically demanding and comes with a lot of stress being in char he of a team of people with all of their own problems.
i'm on the bus to work just now and it's the last place I want to be. I feel so tired and short activities feel exhausting. I have no idea how normal this is or if I'm over thinking it. I don't know if I feel this way because I'm stressed or if it's a symptom.
i'm having a chat with my boss later today, I'm entitled to very decent sick pay. But I don't know if it's too soon to say I want to go off work or if I should stick it out for a bit longer. Or if I'm even entitled to go off now? Would my GP agree?
so many questions. If any one has faced similar what do you think?
