Medical retirement

How do I go about taking medical retirement?

I saw occupational health who wants to wait until after DBS Before making a decision about retirement but because my balance is so poor I am not able to my job. I work with children with special needs so can’t put them at risk. DBS may worsen my balance according to my neurologist. I can’t get Down on the floor To work with the children as it is too painful.
I am currently sitting in my office at home, staring at a computer screen with nothing to do except answer a few emails and wait for the phone to ring.

With the ongoing COVID situation it could be another year before I can have the surgery
