Bonnie F. on December 27, 2009
I was diagnosed in 2/2009 shortly after being laid off from my job.
From Feb 2009-October 2009, I underwent Chemo, Radiation, Mastectomies and expanders. In November I interviewed for a position and just got the call last week that I've been hired. I'm very worried how to handle this. While I received the "no evidence of disease", and have gotten a good chunk of my strength back, I still need to
1- go for Zolmeta infusions once a month only available during business hours
2- see the plastic surgeon once a month for my expanders
3- in the near future, have my port removed
4- in the near future have my expanders replaced with implants
I start Jan 4- what do I tell them? WHat verbage should I use? This is a company that stressed during the interviewed about health and employees reflecting a healthy lifestyle... WHat do I say? TO whom should I say it?
