Dealing with Mesothelioma Day to Day

Some of the more difficult issues that will likely arise after being diagnosed with mesothelioma have to do with daily routines and practices. As someone living with mesothelioma, you may have questions regarding your ability to work or whether or not to inform your employer and fellow coworkers about your condition.

Keeping on the 9 to 5

Your ability to continue working may be a decision that is not up you, but up to your health. Depending on the severity of the disease and the treatment options that you have elected to participate in, you may or may not feel physically well enough to continue working. Set realistic expectations and discuss them with your doctor.

Telling Your Boss

Though you have to evaluate your case taking your particular employer and situation into consideration, it is generally strongly urged that you inform your boss that you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. Most employers hope for the well being of their employees and will do their best to be flexible when you need time off for treatment and recovery. Know your rights. It is illegal for an employer to terminate your employment based on your mesothelioma diagnosis.

Talking to Coworkers

This choice is entirely personal and it may help to discuss it with your spouse or significant other. Some people living with mesothelioma find it easier to not share their diagnosis with coworkers at first. Keep in consideration that coworkers and friends at work will likely notice that there is a change or something wrong, so it someone you may want to address at some point to prevent rumors.
