New diagnosis, booster shot and work?
During my cross country move my PCP told me I had ILC in my left breast. At 51 I am starting a PhD program next week (long story). My original plan had been to get my booster shot when I got here as I had been told to wait until after my mammogram and biopsy. I have my first oncology appointment this coming Tuesday (perhaps that is when I learn size and pathology?), but I start training at my university Monday for teaching labs. Meanwhile, I am getting conflicting advice on getting boosted based on the need for a CT scan.
I am now in the south where covid numbers are dramatically increasing and my university wants a yes or no answer on teaching before I see the oncologist. I have now wasted an entire morning wringing my hands. I have never felt so paralyzed by a decision. Just found your forum and have been thumbing through it trying to stave of feeling so ignorant and ill informed. Has anyone gotten their booster shot while waiting for additional tests? I feel like if I get it now, then I would only be looking at needing someone to fill in for a week. Any shared experiences of navigating a new diagnosis and boosters/work is greatly appreciated!
