How long off work after surgery?
I am trying to plan ahead and am wondering how long people were off of work after surgery.
I work a desk job and file folders are the heaviest thing I pick up. I have an almost 3 year old which I think will give me more problems then work... I have arrangements for her for the first 7-10 days.
So how long were you out of work? How long do you think you should have taken off?
maybe 2 weeks. but its really how you feel. i dont do much at work and still took 1 month off. i took really good care of my self. its not the work so much. its the activitys we do. so take it really easy but just cause you feel better doesnt mean you are. our bodys take 3 months to go back to normal.
and about your 3 year old just let him/her be ,dont over stressed your self
I am almost 5 weeks post op, and I am lucky that I don't have a job right now. For me, I could have sucked it up to work at 4 weeks, but 6 weeks would be a lot better.
The only reason I think maybe that I would have liked more time was to regulate my diet and get in a good routine with it.
