    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Has your employer been in regular contact with you 

    It is best to take their lead on this if they are asking about your return to work if not then wait till they do 

    They should have a long term sick policy you could do with reading and also medical dismissal policy 

    You could speak to hr or your manager about your future options but as above they should be leading these discussions 

    I understand your concerns but don't just resign find out what the company policy is and take it from there 

    Potential outcomes could be return with reasonable adjustments or medical dismissal or even possible ill health retirement depending on your pension
