Had a meniscus tear in my knee , it'll not heal without an op due to limited blood supply so my surgeon said. Had 2 weeks off and 2 weeks ( although it should have been longer ) on light duties. Not sure if they'll offer you IHR on that and the hip as they are repairable.

Many thanks for that,how did you do your knee?what would you class as light duties?be interesting to see what my boss does,he hates anything effecting his budget,or lapsing or unable to loan out!,

Twisted the knee when some **** let his dog out and I had to turn quickly to save being bitten in the bo**ocks. Op was a day job by Arthroscopy. We were going through the revision at the time so just did mapping. But after 2 wks being stuck in the office listening to the Line'os and DIM prattle on , I said I'd skip the rest of rehab and go back out on delivery dosed on painkillers.
