Has anyone else found their employers think your over it now just get on with everything...and you are struggling with pain, amongst other things

  • Hi I don't have an employer but I can see why people in general might think that unless you tell them otherwise.  They assume that treatment is finished, enough time has passed and so you must be fine now.  If you feel able to I would sit down with your employer and explain where you are at with your treatment and recovery and that you have not fully recovered yet.

    If you feel you are being discriminated against  have a read of this (CLICK HERE) useful link on the MacMillan website that talks a bit about discrimination and if you need any help you can give MacMillan a call.

    Hopefully it's just ignorance and if you speak with them and explain they understand.
