Topic: RE: I need an excuse for surgery....
I work at a college, a School of Nursing, to be specific. When I was preparing for my leave, I told my boss as we are close and didn't want her to worry about me. I sent an email to the other dept heads stating that the reason for my leave was personal and thanked them for respecting my privacy. My boss's only concern was that since 95% of my coworkers are nurses they would be naturally worried about me to which I retorted that they, of anyone, should understand the right to privacy.
My weight loss since surgery has been at a faster rate than presurgery, but slow enough that it hasn't been shocking. (I lost 62 pounds in the six months prior, and 50 in the four months since).
If people know, or suspect, they know better than to ask me... LOL
