I am having my first set of x-rays..hoping for good news! I am anxious. I have list of questions for the doctor as well. Is it typical to ask for surgery report?
Just got back..x-rays looked good, he said i am healing nicely. can take off soft brace and drive (start with short trips).
weight limit increased to 15-20 lbs.... continue PT, but only for arm strength;nothing with neck.
WORK: THIS IS MY PROBLEM and really need input!
He said I could return to work in one month as long as I had help in the class. I am a special education teacher for children with autism. my class this year is NOT easy and 2 kids weigh 60-70 lbs. none weigh 15-20 lbs. I have 2 assts. but the nature of the job is so hard to explain...I can never be "safe" from one of them pulling me down,etc
I see him November 21st. and was thinking of having him change note to stay out until then. hopefully by then I will be stronger??
Any advice please...
