After 16 months, Pat returned to work last Wed. He is still receiving CPT-11 and Erbitux every other week and he should be scheduled for a PET scan soon. He is tired and still has the infamous Erbitux rash but his spirits are good. They are starting him off slow at work and Pat is hoping he can be back in his truck and on the road by the middle of this week.
As scary as this is for both of us, our financial situation is even scarier. Since his docs were all for him going back to work, we agreed that it was worth a go for as long as Pat feels he can handle it.
Just wondering if any one else returned to work after a stage iv diagnosis and any tips on how you managed to deal with full time work while still on chemo.
