I find it incredibly hard to work during FOLFOX treatment. I have a desk job and they have allowed me to work from home while doing chemo, but I have just had my sixth treatment out of twelve and after the third it became harder and harder to even work from home on my laptop. I can't even work up the energy to READ. All I want to do is stay in bed from Tuesday to Friday. It's terrible. I know so many people are out there working and supporting families. They can't afford not to work. I just don't know how they do it. Is anyone else in my situation where it's incredibly difficult to work even a simple desk job? My oxi has been reduced by 20% already for the neuropathy side effects but maybe I should ask for another reduction to either that or the 5FU? Any input is appreciated. I really need to get some work done but at this rate it's not happening.
