I was made redundant last year in June while I was recovering from pulmonary emboli and the surgery for the removal of stage 1a granulosa cell tumour. I was instructed to attend an interview for a job in the new structure or I would reduce my redundancy payment. So out of breath and one week before my surgery I went to the interview. I did not get the post just as I thought! Twenty years service and then without a job, this was a confidence blow but to be fair I wanted to change jobs prior to being sick. Well, I am now getting ready to look for work again probably admin again which is fine. I have started to study again too and have passed a final year standard management course and have just started Spanish Intermediate. I would like to do something in the health/legal sector I wonder if anyone has any idea on what sort of admin roles I could do? I am interested in research projects around ovarian cancer because I feel that I now know a lot and am constantly learning from overcome. The Open University has been great for me and I will be continuing with my goal to getting my Open Degree. Had I been younger I would have liked to have studied French law and language. I also wondered if anyone had returned to their studies after having had surgery and treatment.
