Go to the cancer council Australia website. Look in the menu in the about cancer section and there’s a subheading of treatments that outlines the basics of all different treatments including chemo.
They have a lot of information, although very generalised. Everyone’s experience is different. You’ll have a better idea of if you will be able to continue working etc after you see your oncologist and know exactly what type of chemo you need. If you you do need chemo and can continue to work, it’s probably best to tell your employer just incase of emergency and you become unwell while at work. But I’d suggest you plan to take the time off work.
Anyway, for now, take a deep breath and try and take one step at a time.

My mum had a tumour removed two years ago and didn’t require chemo even though they initially thought she might. It was quite a serious operation but she is 100% now.
It was a stressful time, please talk to someone supportive and good luck with it.

Your doctor should be able to answer all questions regarding treatment with you. I also suggest seeking counselling to help with anxiety and treatment emotions. Having friends and family around maybe benificial however it is your choice. If you dont want family to know maybe hire someone to drive you to and from treatment if you cant drive after and depensing on treatment someone to help at home. I wish you all the best.

Talk to your doctor. You do need to tell someone as you will need both physical and emotional support. All treatments are different and all people react differently to the treatments. I’m so sorry you are going through this and wish you the best in this battle ❤️

I think you should speak to your gp, all cases are different and treatment given varies. You may need to tell a friend if you need help but its your decision . All the best
