Distance education for relevant degree is only useful if you're working in the same profession. If you're not in a manager post already then getting the MBA through distance education is not going to get you those skills. MBA degree is more of extrovert persona degree and requires human touch. And for the same reason when you are applying for the MBA position, make sure you can practice your skills. Otherwise distance education that doesn't give you practical skills may not be a good idea. There are also part time degrees that you can try which I suggest could help you more than distance education.

I think the author has reached a stage when he should finally decide as to in which stream he is ready to do hard work. It may be noted that earning salary requires hard work and amenability to discipline in all fields- be it working in a factory or teaching or management fields. Keeping on switching jobs in different fields will not help as experience will not get accumulated in any particular field and explanation will have to be offered to the next employer for keeping on changing the work areas.
Doing MBA or any other course of IGNOU is always likely to be beneficial only when the author is willing to take responsibility of doing hard work in his chosen field.

Management - degree is essential for those who would like to apply some resources in a particular area and would like to see how rhe tangible profit can be made by applying the managerial skills. This degree can be classified again having different branches like Marketing, IT, Human - resources, Hospitality - management, Pharmactual and so on. Hence you have to choose the area where you would like to work.
Distance - education in acquiring a Management - degree can only be beneficial if you want to be familiar with the different tools to be employed in this field and also you are engaged in a job. Under such circumstances you may choose IGNOU for the persuance of your studies.
However, there are lot of Management - schools now a days and as such unless you qualify from a top notch school like IIM, Xavier's Institute or from top classes B schools, your prospects in your service - career may not improve.
Hence a thorough brain storming exercise is essential before you implement your idea into action.

MBA degree through distance learning mode is only helpful when one is looking for upgrading his/her professional profile while working in the relevant field.
Your qualification and experience is not in the field of management, so if you want to have career in the field of management, you should pursue MBA as your regular course.
This will even help you to get placed in some good company as recent qualification will cover or overlap the gap you had due to your health issues.
