Medically, I have no evidence of cancer at the moment. However, I have pain from both my Naphrectomy and the wedge resection and am receiving care for the pain. (it is pretty severe at times).
Professionally, my buisiness area is severely impacted by cuts in the federal budget. My company is contracting, eople around me are being let go. I am one of the top people in my field, but it is a small field, and most of the people are my friends and kow about my medical situation.
So, I can not hide the fact that I have cancer, and am in reduced capacity at the moment -- the pain gets to me after a few hourse, but I am largely paid to think rather than physically do. I do not have the energy to look for a job at the moment.
I probably could qualify for dissability insurance, based on the chronic pain and the likelyhood of future disease (sarcomitiod differentiation increases the odds substationally), but I want to be productive.
I am wondering if anyone else has dealt with job searches in this time?
