I had an appointment today with my doctor to check if I was able to go back to work, after he spent sometime manipulating my shoulder here-there-allover, he decided I need to have xray and scan done to see why there is still some pain in shoulder.

Afterwards,  I had to go into work to fill out an incident form and drop off doctor's certificate and receipts on monies I had paid for appointment, while I was in the office I had a chat with my supervisor and office manager to discuss my future hours as my contract is coming up for renewal... both very supportive and will wait on results of xray and scan to see how many hours I lose or will be increased (before this problem I had been asked if I would like to have an extra 5 hours a week). was chuffed that at 56 yo I have been offered more hours.lol.

My work is physically demanding and  I don't want to push myself that eventually I have to retire with injuries/wear'n'tear. Manager said there is a possiblity that if I drop to 5 hours less a week on contract they could still give me relief work to bring it back up to my present workload. So basically its a win/win situation.

Well good luck on the scan. Don't push yourself with extra hours if it will hurt you in the long run.
