Hi there, I'm Cat and I've recently gone back to work part-time after having surgery for borderline ovarian cancer last summer. There's still some uncertainty about my condition as there was something unclear on my last CT and the gynae thought I might have some fluid building up in my tummy. But my work are assuming I'm going to be ok and are increasing my hours gradually up to full-time. All the time I was off-sick, I was looking forward to going back to work and being 'normal' again. But now I'm back, I feel like I'm a totally different person. I feel like I look the same to my colleagues, but I feel totally different on the inside, like everything has changed, but I haven't caught up with it somehow! Sometimes at work I just want to sit and cry. Has anyone else felt strange or just mixed up when they've gone back to work?
