    Hi Tuftyann,

    Are you back at work yet? Your Dr can sign you back on a phased return if you are ready to go back but not yet to your full hours. It isn't a sick note you get now but a fit for work note which stipulates on it how your Dr would deem ok for you to return be it phased or on light duties etc.

    Don't let work pressurise you as at the end of the day you have been unwell? It is not only a health problem but also an emotional drain having cancer and you are what's important in all of this.

    Best Wishes
