I feel I need to have a rant sorry. My husband treated me and a friend (which I took my sister as she helped me a lot when I was really ill) to a spa voucher, last October for our 25th wedding anniversary. So having had a busy few months I booked it for yesterday. It was for us to have a facial and a neck, shoulder and back massage. The place was in Nantwich which is 40 minutes from our home. We had a lovely day together before, had lunch out and a look around Nantwich which was lovely. We went to the spa place looking forward to our pampering. We had to fill out a health questionnaire before and of course they ask if you have had any operations, undergone or having any treatments, and what medication do you take. I was honest and said that I had had a hysterectomy for OC and see my oncologist every 3 months, but have been clear since finishing my treatment in Dec 2011 (14 months ago). They took my sister to her treatment room and then a few minutes later took me to mine. Then she looked at my health questionnaire and said she would have to talk to her manager about whether they could go ahead with my massage and facial. when she returned she said she was sorry but it was company policy that they can't do anything until I'd been clear of the cancer for over 2 years. I was really upset, and I said can you not even give me a facial? They said no sorry it is our policy and they offered to do my finger nails for me by way of compensation. I couldn't walk out because my sister was having her massage at this point, so I had to just have my nails done and sit and wait for her to finish. I can't understand this, since finishing my chemo in Dec 2011 I've had 2 facials at different places and a back massage, done by a person who helps out at the little salon based in our local cancer unit and she had no problem with it. I know in the scheme of things this is a trivial matter. I felt really upset and felt almost stigmatised for having had cancer. Thanks for letting me have rant.
