I`ve been diagnosed with copd for the past 8 years, gave up smoking then and have managed to work full-time without a day off sick. However, last November I fell ill with the flu (should have had the jab) and ended up in icu for 3 weeks. I want to go back to work, I`m nearly 60 and have another 4 years until retirement and need the salary. My work got a medical report from my doctors with my permission and now want me to see an occupational therapist for as assessment before they can consider me returning to work and I`m just a bit worried that they may say I am not fit enough and dismiss me. Does anyone else work and if so does it effect your ability to do your job?
