Was 3 weeks for me but I do have a rather relaxed job sitting at a desk most of the day.
Energy levels take a nose dive around 4-8 weeks where it will be enough just trying to stay awake most days.

Lifting should be restricted for as long as possible and as you work with such illnesses I would eb on the very cautious side, perhaps they can find you something a little less risky if your wanting to get back….

Can picture you becoming a little miracle in no time… excercise in your job will give you great results I am sure….

I expect St Richards are pretty clued up on Health and Safety so perhaps a few quite works about going back to work is in order…..

Good luck
