I am curious about how others have made a decision on when to take time off of work. I’ve recently been diagnosed. My chemo begins next week and will success, I would have surgery during the summer. I know that this cancer is aggressive and I am most likely in for a series of such treatments. With that comes managing the side effects and recoveries.
I am considering taking disability now, while I can still enjoy time visiting with loved ones. I fear that one day, in the not so distant future, I may not be able to. Has anyone run into problems where STD/LTD denied claims? Do they really determine a person can return to work with this cancer’s pattern?
Please share your experience if comfortable.
