Update! Spoke to my head teacher who has been so lovely and understand I may not be in. Apparently has been there 3 times although unsuccessful. Feel better now as I know she understands it all and she said they will deal with any classes or issues. My main concerns were Year 11 and my year group.
Next visit in a week or so is the doctor! Xxx
I am planning to start cycle 2 beginning of April. This is at the start of the school Easter Holidays. I'm a teacher and a HoY at a tough secondary. I could've started my cycle last period but I didn't feel emotionally ready after the last one and with how stressful work is.
I don't want to postpone again and again as when is the right time! I've already put the school first in a way.
If my treatment works and is similar to last time then I would be going for EC and even ET within the first week of return to school so would be calling in sick. But now after experiencing a cycle and how it felt in work, I know I can't do it again so want the 2ww off. This means being signed off.
I feel somewhat guilty as it's getting near exams for a year 11 group I picked up after Christmas but I'm revising Loads with them until easter.
Are doctors really understanding of being signed off? Would they do it for 2-3 weeks if I asked? What would they sign you off for?
I'm planning on seeing my new head soon to give her the heads up. She knows I had a failed cycle. But I don't want to say I'm getting signed off more like I'd be off treatment dependant. Xxx
