Yeh, is pretty horrific that they have caused you more harm.

It was private healthcare as well so you'd like to think this sort of stuff didn't happen but I guess mistakes can still be made. I didn't want to get the lass from physio into trouble. :-?

I'm just worried a about work. I talked to my boss and explained and he seemed ok with it as I'm only missing 4 days really until the Xmas hols as I was meant to go back today and break up on Friday. But it doesn't look good does it!

Hmm someone screwed up somewhere. You've taken it really well, but its caused more damage which is bad really.
I hope your recovery is swift!

Dont worry about work right now. All that is important is that you get better.

Aw, thanks Captain. I'm trying to look on the bright side of things as theres not much I can do. My surgeon is looking into it and I'm trying to keep busy during the day.

I'm trying not to worry too much about work, I'm just aware of the fact that I haven't been in the job long and that it's going to look awful to my boss. Can I get in trouble for this? Do they have grounds to dismiss me?
Oh dear, that's the problem with being on your own all day, you worry about things more! ](*,)

How long have you had the job and do you have a contract?
If you have been there a while I doubt you will get sacked, you are genuinely ill and signed off by a doctor.
Keep making offers of working from home and make sure you keep your boss informed, follow any conversations up with an email so you have a trail of what's gone on. This way if you ge sacked unfairly you can take it to a tribunal.

I've been in the job since early September, and have signed a contract.

I've been talking to my boss regularly since I've been off to keep him updated, sending my sick notes etc. I've also asked if there is anything I can do from home but there isn't apparently. :x

It's just so frustrating because I would have been back now if the physio was done properly. Bit then again it's not like I'm skiving, I've had surgery and an official sicknote.

Pretty sure they wouldn't risk sacking you as it would be obvious it was for the wrong reasons and they wouldn't risk a tribunal
The fact you have offered to do work shows you are willing

That's true Bel Bel, it wouldn't look too good if they did anything like that.

I've got a horrible cold at the moment so really I think home is the best place for me anyway. :-({|=

Hi Highland cow


Awww, I feel your pain (well not literally :wink: ) but like others this is a great chance to have some "you" time. Its probably not a good idea to get out and about to much at the moment given the circumstances. It probably feels rubbish that you had an argument with your bf and your friends let you down, but remember arguments are healthly and no relationship is without them, they keep it exciting! Regarding your friends, xmas is a tough time and people often have plans made weeks and weeks in advance. Maybe organise a big catch up for the new year? Something to look forward to.

Im using this xmas as a chance to relax and enjoy time off work. Eat, drink and watch rubbish TV! Do the same :wink:

Merry Christmas *bigxmastree*

Wow a Christmas tree! Awesome!

To be honest part of me is enjoying the time off. I've been off work since November so that's a looooong break!The good news is I'm able to get up and about a lot more recently, just little things like walking to the shop to get some fresh air really helps. :D

I don't think they will attempt to sack you because you're doing everything legally - providing them with info and updates, offering to work from home etc. For them to sack you would be a legal mine field for them and in an economic climate such as this no company wants to end up in court.
You have to focus on getting better and keeping positive will aid the recovery process. Relax, its christmas. Maybe try getting in to gaming (I know, typical bloke thing to say) but if you have a DS or something you can get stuck into some games.. or maybe get playing those on going online games - I currently play SkyRama (haha yes, an airport game - I hear you say typical with a slight groan) Games like that can get addictive and pass the time very very quickly!
I think you already said you watch dvds which also help - when I was in hospital I had a portable dvd player and got my mum to bring in Hot Fuzz and my Due South boxset too. Set me up nicely when I was in my room on my own, ironically 3 days later I got moved into the ward with other people :lol: :lol:

Haha typical you, Captain! :P

I'm not really into games but I do play GTA when I'm at my boyfriend's.

Still it's Christmas Eve and I'm actually at my boyfriends now so that should keep me well entertained!

Were you in hospital for a while then?

haha :D I manage to find all the plane games ;) :D

Hmm I understand. Not everyone is a gamer. I used to be back in the 90's but I rarely play games as much now.
Although hopefully GTA will keep you entertained! I liked the first GTA as it had a retro game look to it :)

Oh I was in hospital for 3 weeks from July into August. Infact there was this post about it in chit chat..

Sorry for the late reply....oh dear Captain, sounds like you really went through it. Here's to a quick and speedy recovery.

I'm not sure if anyone is still reading this but today I went back to work. My surgeon has given me a month of part time, so I come work mornings only. It's good because I get to get back into it, it shows willing but still gives my hip a chance to recover. No more lie ins though.
My boss has also given me some admin to do at home! :D

Everything went better than expected.

That's good news. I was wondering if you were back today. Part-time sounds quite fun!
