    Radiation: Today I finished 35 radiation treatments. It was not a pleasant experience. My breast is badly burned as well as under my arm. Can't wear a bra yet because the area is irritated.. Extremely fatigued, had to take last 2 weeks off work. But thank God aim here!

      i think you have a complaint with the ADA if the probation is strictly a result of going through cancer treatment...if you were having problems at work before then that clouds the issue....

      Hi Gerbil61,
      Are you sure your probation has to do with your diagnosis? Most companies place new hires on a 60 day probation period to make sure that new hire is the correct fit for the job. When I started the job I am currently in, I was on a 60 day probation as well. Like with any new job, you want to prove to your boss that they hired the correct person- so you do your best. I'm sure if you are giving it all you can, that probation will be lifted in no time.

      I think this is the normal course of starting a new position. It also may involve an elimination period for benefits, etc. You may have to be honest with your supervisor and let them know what you are almost done (by the way) going through. It should be getting better soon. Just don't complain to them, tell them how you want this to work and how excited you are about your new position. People like to work with you, but if your attitude has to be in the right place. This can all work out!
