Been off work now since beginning of October. Had been struggling through work then ended up at A&E four times in a month had to take unpaid days off work until my gp signed me off in October. It took 8 weeks just to get to see consultant who put me on Zoladex for suspected endo or other Gynae problems to see if it will work. The hospital or doctors lost the letter but finally after 2 and a bit weeks i got my first injection. It's been 2 weeks that i had injection and it hasn't helped, i also had a period that has just finished today, it's been a horrid week pain wise and lack of sleep and also mentally. Money is very tight and we are also considering selling up. Got doctors tomorrow to get another sick note and i am hoping after my next injection things will improve enough to go back. It's obvious by now that until they go and have a look whats going on inside me that i wont be able to get a diagnosis and something done to get rid of pain and even then i know this is going to be a long term problem. Can i ask my doctor for a note to say to work that i am not fully fit for work but could possibly return with certain changes? Any advice would be grateful x
