I was due to have my first lap on Thursday and i have had to cancel it as I will loose my job! After my pre assessment they advised 2 weeks min recovery time maybe more if they perform treatment. unfortunately i cannot afford to take the time off as my SSP for a whole week is less than what i earn in 1 day.
It is so frustrating as i am not going to continue to be unwell, being referred back to gyne to discuss other options. Just because im unwell doesn't mean my bills stop and if you cant afford to take the time off work and then possible loose my job because of this what the hell do you do!
Im so frustrated that my employer is not being supportive. I am now going to have to try and save money so that I can afford to have the surgery & keep up with all my outgoings.
I speak to a lot of women on here that dont work and id like to know how you keep up with life!!
And women that do work please explain how you manage to have the time off???
