bringing horse back into jumping

Hello everyone!
Just had questions on what others have done to bring your horse back into jumping. I have a 17.2hh(almost 17.3) 9 year old irish sports horse gelding(Seb). He had a operation 2 months ago and has a month left before I can ride him again. I used to jump him competetively at 90cm(he was jumping for just a year at that stage) and higher at home. At the start of his jumping he was very spooky of most fences, but just before the operation I had him jumping whatever I pointed him at, very honest. Of course I'm going to start out slow with the flatwork and fitness before I even consider starting to jump, but I just wanted past stories of people that have brought their horses back into work. I have a very good instructor for jumping but I need to get seb ready before proper lessons. So.... Just would really appreciate some ideas from you! Things that worked, things that don't, just general :)
Thanx :)

Depends on what kind of an operation we're talking about here.
Our assistant trainer imported a German warmblood that promptly colicked. She had to have colic surgery to survive.
It's been nearly a year before she's been able to jump her. And even now... she's not quite the same.

He had a operation on his two front legs to have a chip removed outh the pedal bones, the vet told us he will preform much better than before :)
