I have been looking on the past posts to see if anyone has made it through treatment and recovery without needing many days off. Is there anyone out there that this has been their experience? If so how did you mange side effects? I am in the 1-2 stage and have excellent curable rate. That’s my first question.
Now for my second question - Here’s the rub:
I have accepted a new position at a new company and will start work a few days at the end of treatment. The new job knows that I was diagnosed with cancer because I answered the pre-employment medical exam questionnaire that I had been. What they don’t know is that I will be starting treatment shortly.
I just told my present job about needing a accommodations such as a flexible work schedule. I will give notice in 2 weeks. (I have to give 30 day notice according to my contract.) My boss wasn’t thrilled today but softened after he talked to the company attorney. He is going to flip when I give notice that I am leaving for another job. Does anyone had an experience like mine and/or do you know if they can make me leave before I want to?
Thanks to my new found community. I know this: Community is much smarter and wiser than any one individual. :o)
