Hi, I have spent nearly two months in hospital because of severe septic shock multiorgan failure needing artificial ventilation and dialysis and next major surgery. I have a return-to-work discussion approaching with my employers. I normally work for 11-hour shifts but am unable to do so because of muscular atrophy, lethargy and breathlessness suffered because of the damage cause to my lungs. Do you think I am able to seek a return to work on flexible hours and lessened hours or do you think I can seek a phased return to work. Bearing in mind that I have been off work since august 2007 and hope to return in June 2008 on lessened hours. I'd recognize your views! Thank you!
