Im asking for some advice when I return to work. I’ve been on sick leave for 18 months following an viral illness which led to an episode of Transverse Myelitis which was then diagnosed as RRMS, plus major heart complications of left bundle branch block, dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure (stage 3b). I’ve never been off for anything like this length of time or had chronic health problems of this nature before.
After lots of medications, physio therapy, a CRT-D implant, cardiac rehab etc, I’m very much improved.
My EDSS has been assessed as 2.5, I can walk well independently but my legs and arms get tired and tingly after use and I can get very breathless and tired quickly.
I’m due to return to work in the NHS as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in a very busy walk in centre next week. I am being given an extended supported phased return which I am very grateful for. But I would appreciate any help or advice that people can offer to make my return more comfortable, manageable and less problematic. Thank you for reading my post.
