I’m retired from dentistry but still own the business and have to stay on the GDC list and therefore have to still go on courses and do my cpd even though I don’t go near any teeth!!!
Anyway went on an all day course yesterday with my friend..in Peterborough so didn’t expect to see anyone I knew
Of course someone who I know vaguely but has obviously heard of my mbc through the grapevine and came rushing over..Hi Barbara heard you’re not well how are you?...I looked at her said I’m fine how are you?...she shut up then and we talked if other things..I had no intention of talking about illness
I really enjoyed the day..felt ‘normal ‘ felt like a professional person of some importance instead of a bloody cancer patient
Also one of the lecturers was radiographic diagnosis..some of which were of mbc if the jaw and it didn’t upset me strangely because it wasn’t me it was a patient
