I really need some advice. I had a Micro-D in Jan this year due to a bulging disc causing pain in my back and also nerve pain in my left leg & bum.
I had only been working in this job sine the Sept before but had been honest about my back - Was not as bad then!
I do work with kids in a creche, (My passion) which is not good but I do avoid lifting etc.
When I found out It was serious they were ok and I had 6 weeks off. They were supportive and managed to ease back fine, still a few niggles and days in bed. After my 5 months there, I had failed my probation as I thought but was put on for longer.
Since then, it has got worse and worse - I have been signed off a few times and had a meeting a while ago to see what can be done.
I was signed off again last week and returned today - to the news that I had yet again failed my probation and that they were giving me 2 weeks and if I have any time off in that time, I will be sacked. I have been referred back to the surgeon and need another MRI and possibly more surgery.
I am unsure as to what happens if I make it thru the 2 weeks. I was, and am still in shock!
I also am suffering with depression - I have done for years but this does not help things.
I have been told to see my doc and concider giving up work and relying in benefits until I know what is going on.
But then others are saying they can't do this. I know it's not their fault, its a business after all but I am only 25 and have no idea what to do for the best.
Sorry for droning on
