I must stress this is NOT because of the operation, nothing has been diagnosed yet, but this is down to overall absence over the past 12 months. I had 6 weeks off following a non fault accident that I am still on pain medication for , and then time off from 8th October which is following a Thermachoice procedure which resulted in the pain and consequential discovery of this 11cm segmented cyst with elevated blood test results ca125 351.
I am being visited tomorrow by the HR dept and The manager to explain in more detail about my redundancy and how they can support me as I wont be fit enough to apply or be in work to look for other vacancies within the business. I work for a huge dept that helps disabled people. There may be other jobs I could apply for, with some flexibility they were explaining. If I am offered a whopping redundancy I may choose to take it and look for something new. I have worked for them for 8.5 years
Does anyone know if I would be able to claim benefits if I am not able to work if I am on chemotherapy?
