After a looong haul, I finished my chemo treatment and series of methotrexate shots. PET shows clear! The oncologist has ok'd my returning to work (8 hr days) about a week from now. My job is sitting at a computer all day processing pension related information and detailed. It will take me awhile to get "up to speed" and I hope my corporate company is understanding of that. BUT......
Basically, I am nervous about returning to work after these 6+ months. I'm worried about doing my job and just getting through the day of work. During my treatments, I never knew what symptoms to expect day to day. I still have very disjointed night sleep, fatigue, muscle aches and need to gain at least 15 lbs. I feel the cold more too and you can only put on so many clothes until you can't move.
I'm looking for advice from others who returned to work on how best to handle it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
