Hi there, I was made redundant on 30th Nov. I know i have been booked in for a hysterectomy and a few other proceduces on 13th Jan and today i was offered a job. I knew there is no way they would give me the job if i told them about op at interview, and they didnt ask about health so i didnt tell them. they only asked about past sick leave and as i only worked 2 days a week my record is good,( as i just plod on) , which i told them. Well i got the job which i'm thrilled about in this market and i start after christmas on 6 months probation. I'm thinking of postponing the operation until i'm settled in the job and proven myself a good worker. Is this a good idea? I'm suffering but coping with pain and prolapse issues. I really cant afford to be unemployed as i have 3 kids and we need the money so i feel i have to put this first. I'm giving over 4 weeks notice so hope the consultatn is ok with this. Anyone any experince of requesting a postponement?
