hi everyone.

I had op on knee on the 16 april to repair tendon. i an thinking of going back to work next week. 4 weeks post op. still in pain but is it post op pain or fibro. I cannot stand being at home, feel i have lost my routine.

Hi Webby

I guess the only way you will know if you are ready is to go back and see? Will they let you go back to work gradually part time, building up to full time? Take it slowly and make the most of having an understanding employer :) xx


thankyou for your answer. my line manager called and has said i can go back part time and build up to full time So yes i am going back next week the longer i leave it the harder it will be. I am lucky that i can work really xxxx angie webb
