I have been disabled for 5 years due to previous spinal surgeries that have not helped and I have had to use crutches or wheelchair. However, I have had a recent operation Spinal Cord Stimulation and I am able to walk for the first time in 5 years unaided and without pain. I am looking to go back to work part time but am worried that my 5 years out of work due to my disability will put people off from employing me. Also, although the device have me to walk etc, I do still have the problem in my back and therefore, I do have to take care not to do any further damage. I am due to start a part time OU course in Feb for Social Sciences and Psychology. I just don't really know where to start in terms of work. I have informed PIP of these new developments and so my benefit will stopped shortly and I need to try and get some work. Sorry for rambling on.
