Congrats, I have recently gone back to work after having 4 1/2 months off for a bad CD flare. It was great to be back but overwhelming at times as so much had changed had to spend first week reading and relicencing.
I'm lucky in that we have a phased return policy and this is individual to each person so you work the hours you feel comfortable with. I did 3 weeks of reduced hours, gradually increasing them each week and had last week off as holiday and should been back to full time again this week but have managed to catch summer flu as feel rough as hell but determined to not phone in sick so finished 2 hours early yesterday and as long as don't feel as worse will do same tomorrow.
