So I've been off work for 19 weeks so far. My latest rheumatology appointment confirmed that I have active disease still. My next treatment is going to be tocilizumab although I have no start date for this. My local hospital has no delivery company for the injection & the regional centre that have advised me to have this need my local hospital to pay for the infusion. So I'm stuck with active disease till they sought it out!
I'm worried about loosing my job due to sickness. The company I work for is going through a restructure & as I'm off work I have no idea what is going on.
Any advice welcome on:
What my rights are?
If they can dismiss me while I'm on sick?
How long people have found tocilizumab starts to work?
If anyone has found a difference in the infusion & injection?
