My biggest fear is that I will be unable to work. I have scheduled my treatments for late Thursday afternoon. From what I understand, Friday I will be tired, Saturday more so. Since I live alone, my job is crucial to my survival - some of the blogs talk about taking a lot of time off from the treatment - my job won't sustain this (small co doesnt fall under the federal rules) and I don't get paid if I don't work - anyone else out there in the same predicament? I had lumpectomy and 14 lymph nodes removed 9 were cancerous. Peripherals were clear. Will have 4 c/a treatments 2 weeks apart, then the toxitere 4 treatments 2 weeks apart, followed by 6-1/2 weeks radiation m-f. After that, I intend to rent myself out as a night light as I am certain I will glow in the dark! Thanks for listening.
