    Fertility related surgery required, disclosing medical diagnosis causes discomfort

    I am working with a high profile MNC bank. Recently, I have been diagnosed with infertility issues which need immediate medical attention includes biopsy. For surgical procedures like biopsy, I have been advised to apply for longer leave for recovery. What should I do without making everything obvious? Should I confide the truth to my reporting boss as I donít want be topic of discussion in the office. Please show me a way out.

    Hello Aspirant,

    It is very important to look after the personal matter along with the official duties.The employees work for the sake of the organisation as well as for itself & family.When you have such unavoidable problems,you must take care of it first otherwise you will have nothing to do except worry.

    So get a medical certificate from the doctor concerned & submit a leave application along with the medical certificate to your reporting boss & proceed for the purpose said.The doctor may describe the case in better way,so need not worry for the matter.

    It is the time to proceed forward.You boss will arrange to look after the official matter in place of you.The govt. has made provision of medical leave to utilise it in the real case as stated by you.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok

    Hey!
    First of all my sympathies and best wishes with you so that you recover from your medical problem very soon. as far as feeling shy about your medical problem is concerned then I it is understandable because such situations are not easy to disclose. What I can suggest you for the moment is that you tell your boss is that yours is situation of a medical emergency and the doctor has asked you take a long leave because that is what will be required for you to recover. You can also ask your doctor to write a medical letter for you in which he can state that you need a leave for a specified number of months. Problems like hernia are very common these days and they require a surgery and hence you can disclose this as a reason for your leave if you think that your boss is not the understanding kinds.

    Incase your boss is the kind of person who understands your situation and genuinely has empathy for you then you can disclose the problem to him. You can also request him to not mention it to other clients since the ailment is personal to you and you do not feel like talking about it with everyone. Generally people at high position are responsible and understanding enough to analyze the situation at hand and act sensibly. I hope that your immediate boss is also one of those people.

    Your last resort would be to tell the immediate boss even if he is not the kinds who would understand because such problems are very common these days and there is nothing to feel shy about. The lifestyles today are such that problems like these are common nowadays. Today it is you facing this problem tomorrow it can be somebody else. It is about being a good human being and respecting the other person's personal space. I hope your problem is orted out. All the best.
