I have OA in my lumbar spine and neck, even though my GP says it is only mild I get lots of aching and pain if i do certain things like bending and standing etc.
I started back to work this week and am doing ok i am getting aches and some pain but not so bad at the mo
I have asked to reduce my hours by having friday's off so will be doing 26.5 hours per week, this will give me a 3 days to rest, well hopefully!!! I am worried about the reduction in money but have been told that i may not lose too much because i wont get taxed as much????? has anyone else found that they are not too worse off when they have reduced their hours?
I am also worried that it may affect my pension, I am in the local government pension scheme.
I just hope that I am doing the right thing :oops:
