Has anyone else struggled with medical issues in grad school? I was diagnosed with a "benign" tumor right and had to have radiation treatment. I'm super lucky that my amazing grad student insurance covered all of the bills and I got to go to the University's amazing medical school hospital for treatment. That said, I'm still struggling with some issues related to the tumor and am wondering how others deal with medical situations in grad school. Are there even others out there like me? Where do you get support from? Do you feel like you face a stigma from your department? How has your advisor reacted? ETA: If you don't want to come out with it on the board, maybe you would be willing to PM me? I know that some people are private about medical stuff and don't want to talk about it.
