I returned to work this week, after taking almost 8-9 months off. It's only 2 days a week 4 hours a day, but I think for now that's sufficient, especially given I have 4 more cycles of chemo to go. I'm due to start cycle 3 of chemo (on 6 cycles of chemo, 5 days on and 23 days off), and I felt the last lot of chemo made me feel a little more tired. Generally the fatigue has been okay though. On the 4/11 I had a MRI scan. It showed a little whiteness where the radiation therapy treatment was given, but generally no sign of any tumour related activity. I will wait for the next scan results in January, with the scan being carried out on the 8th of January. I need to remain positive, and be hopeful.

I have exactly the same thing. I thought I wrote that article. im going back to work in January as I am still working on my fine motor skills on r/h/s. I keep going to physio and do excersises at home but I cant wait to actually return. im curious to see wether I can still do what I used to do. ive almost finished chemo (5 days on 23 off) I finish early jan, and go back mid to late jan 2 days a week to begin with the ease myself into the norm.
