    I've been off since Christmas with a bad back and sciatica. the MRI reveals a herniated disc that is too bad to be alleviated by physio, injections etc. surgery is the only option so am waiting for more dates and referrals. how long does it take from having the surgery to being able to stand up on front of class all day please?

    Hi there,
    I was wondering how you are getting on. I hope you are now in a better state. My daughter needs the same operation but she has a job which requires lots of bending.

    Could the school make adjustments for you, eg phased return, more chance to rest? The type of place you work in might affect the answer.
