Hi All -
I hope I'm posting in the correct forum. If not, someone please let me know where I should post this.
I'll try to make this short. I had a tumor at L5 and had the lateral surgery in August and back surgery 9 days later. The tumor was removed (I only had a "shell" of vertebrae remaining). Bone was grafted from my hip during the first surgery and from cadaver for the second. Titanium and plastic hardware was used and the fusion has been a success. I was feeling pretty good until about 2 weeks ago when the numbness returned to my left side and now I also have these strange shooting/electrical sensations down my left leg. I have an appointment with my surgeon next week to follow up.
The reason for the post is because I'm scheduled to return to work part-time in 2 weeks. I have an office job and must request in writing my requirements (ergonomic workstation). Does anyone have a sample letter regarding this type of request? Or, have any ideas as to what I should specifically request. All I know is that I'll need a really comfortable chair. Honestly, I don't know how I'll handle this at all because I truly don't feel up to work yet.
Thanks for any help and have a great evening.
