20th August

Well, only 2 weeks to go before I go back to work, after 9 months off, this may take some getting used to! Lol!
Being out of the house for 11 hours each day after being at home!
To be honest, it is only the last 3 weeks or so that I have been feeling close to the way I did before this 'journey through cancer'.

I am expecting that the Doctor will advise a phased back to work, which should help.
As I have said before, I have to go and see the Oncologist on Thursday 1st September, then go to the Doctor on Friday 2nd to be 'signed off'.  (I hope).

I am proud to say, that I have been asked to be an 'Ambassador' for a cancer site called 'Navigating Cancer'. (The link to it is in red further down this page on the right).

I am honoured to have been asked.
I hope that I do the 'job' justice, and can help as many people as possible during their diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

You'll be a wonderful Ambassador and you absolutely MUST insist on a phased return to work.

It's quite exhausting going back at first, you may 'feel' better but you need to remember that you're doing much less than normal right now - which is why you're feeling better :)

Phased return over a minimum of 6 weeks is essential Carol....

Hi Carole, Yes I that you are right, I am doing a lot more domestic chores now, and I am finding things like shampooing the carpet really hard, and I am getting nasty tummy cramps, nerves I imagine, after being off work for so long.......
