Out of Work

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering how long after the surgery did it take before you went back to work?  I am trying to get everything together before starting the process.

I had surgery on a Monday and went back the following Wednesday.  I think this is unusual though most people take longer.   I was pretty sore for 4 or 5 days, but after that I was really fine to go back to work.

I had mine this passed Monday the 13th and I am off until the 28th. Wanted to give myself enough time to rest up!

I had surgery on Thursday and went back to work on Monday, (day 5) only 4 hours a day the first week and full-time on day 12.  I had paid medical leave available, so there was no reason not to take 3 or 4 weeks like the Dr. Recommended.  I was stubborn, I guess!  It all worked out, but I was really tired the first few weeks.


What does your Dr. Recommend for you?

Most people go back in 2 weeks. If you can take longer, great, but 2 weeks is fine for the majority of us.

I went back after two weeks and was completely fine. I think it also depends on what type of work you do.
