Speaking from personal experience. I had a health issue that impacted my staffing. I didnt tell my RM, because like you, I didn't feel like it was their business....Leadership roasted me alive at YE, despite explaining the situation during the YE review process. They told me that I should have made them aware ahead of time. Up to you, but that was my experience.

Probably no sense in telling them much of anything until you know what you are dealing with. If you’re worried about staffing it sounds like you want to work.

Health is always #1. Had to take short term leave for a few weeks a couple of months after joining my firm, but the productivity that comes after dealing with ailments far outweighs postponing treatment.

RM....my health is not really their business tho... not that it matters that much but don't want it to effect my staffing or ability to get a new project...not sure how to tread this water...haven't been with firm too long so being newish and wanting to make good is important to me
