Getting back into running after illness?

Hi,

I recently became ill and had to be hospitalized for 2weeks bedrest due to illness, and am now able to walk around again although I am not allowed to do any running. By the time I can begin again, I will have been off training for close to 5, possibly 6 weeks. In the past, i would average around 45km/week running, and would cross train on day in between. Has anyone got any advice or tips on how i should approach retraining when the time comes, how long i can expect to regain my fitness (and how much ability i will have lost) and if anyone has any similar experiences? Any answers welcomed and greatly appreciated.
