Friday will be my 3 week post acdf. As I had posted before I have been pressured by my boss to go back to work. I actually went in the last 2 days for just 4 1/2 hours each day. I do not have a physically challenging job, but am constantly on the telephone (I did finally get a headset that is extremely helpful) & in & out of my desk assisting people. Training my brand new asst. Just "being on " at all times. Di I keep doing this & hope it gets better soon. I am in so much pain after just about 2 hours into it.
My pain med is percoset has been cut to just 3 per day. I also have flexiril up to 3 per day. This just doesn't work. I have my 4 week post op next Thursday. I don't know if I should wait or call & request something different or the same more often. Originally I had the percs. 1 or 2 each 4- hours. I am better than at first & realize that that is probably too much now. There has to be something else though to take in between.
I know that life must go on & I need to get back to work. It is just so painful. I'm concerned that I am over doing. I get home & change out of my office attire & into my comfy clothes. I try to relax but it's hard as I hurt so terribly bad.
Off the subject. How do I recieve a p.m. that is waiting for me. I can not seem to open it?
