I have just had surgery a week ago, bilateral mastectomy and sentinel node biopsy.
Am I a "wimp" if I am not able to effectively work right now??
It is not like I am getting chemo or radiation like most people do with cancer.
My nodes are clear but I am almost too tired to keep my eyes open.
I have got zero sick leave left so I'm trying to telework at a new job I don't understand.
I don't even understand the emails they send out.
I am trying to return to my old job, perhaps in a couple of months, which I do understand.
I am asking about FMLA.
Is that bad to ask that at a new job?
I got diagnosed / saw the need for bilateral mastectomy while transitioning to this new job.
Last job did not have health insurance so that's how I took this job.
The lymph nodes came back clear, so I would not immediately need coverage, and would just not have private health insurance again possibly, but would go to a different job.
This job insists that I be called at home after hours and I can't take it right now.
The supervisor finally answered me and said that it is essential for the job to be called after hours sometimes, which gives the woman (her deputy) calling me the lattitude to keep on doing it.
