Hi. Was due to have my op on February 7th 2018 but just prior to it had to meet with the anaesthetist. She took my BP several times and it was 214/115...."in stroke category" apparently. She rang my doctor who fitted me in immediately, started me on BP tablets & signed me off work. Six weeks of check ups & tablet increases brought my BP down. I had my op on April 3rd. My wound did not heal well & I was in hospital for 11days. I am now almost 4 weeks in, in alot of pain, not sleeping, feeling really down. Last week, my line manager paid me a welfare visit. Yesterday I received a letter from HR saying another welfare meeting has been planned for Fri 4th May @ our education offices around 15 miles away. That I should be aware that it is a formal meeting to discuss this absence and my options and can bring a union rep with me!!! I find it utterly insensitive and ludicrous....I cannot drive, can barely dress myself & get to the toilet let alone attend a meeting many miles away!! I am feeling so so depressed and stressed & cannot sleep. I have other health issues due to a non functioning pituitary tumor in 2002 and am supposedly covered by the disability act but rarely is any notice taken of this. I have a doctor's note until June 10th at least. Has anyone else had this problem? I am beside myself with worry. Am I within my rights to request postponement of the meeting for several weeks whilst I recover? Kim
