My sister in law had her first round of chemo for breast cancer last Monday. Wed, Thur and Fri she said she felt like she was in a black hole. She felt separated from her body and unable to get back ...

Its the whole of the colon see ...
I had my lumpectomy and axial node clearance on Thursday, and was well enough to return to work on the following Monday.
However, my wound was still draining and due to OH&S issues they would not let me return until the drain tube was removed.
Apparently my wound took a relatively long time to drain (11 days) so I didn't return to work until the Tuesday nearly 2 weeks after my surgery.
I was only working part time (4 hours per day, 5 days per week) prior to my surgery so was able to continue to work throughout chemo and radiation as I could fit treatments around my working hours.
I was back to my desk job in 3-5 days.
I had surgery Friday. Was out Sat, Sun Mon and Tuesday. Went back to work WEdnesday. Worked thru chemo. The radiation wore me out. Had to take a 4 wk break there.
Although I did not have cancer, I had a lumpectomy on a Thursday and was back to work on Tuesday.
Most women in my family have had some form of cancer.
My mum had a lumpectomy and returned to work after 1 week. Each person is different, i would envisage to recover properly, you take the time off that you were advised to, i know with my mum it was 4-6 weeks.
Good luck sweetie
I had the lumpectomy on Thursday and was back at work the following Wednesday. I felt fine, but dealing with the freakin drain hanging out of my side was a pain. You might not need a drain if it's just a lumpectomy ... I also had an axillary node dissection.
