I know that surgery success is not based on when a person can go back to work and I would have chosen to stay home longer than 2 1/2 weeks to recover from my surgery, but financially I could not afford to stay home.
So, the first week was tough and I spent all day last Friday just recovering from the week. I was sick most of Saturday and today.
Back to work tomorrow
Is anyone else in the same boat where they were pushed to go back to work sooner than they were ready? I just can't believe my doctor would release me so soon. The FMLA form that he filled out before surgery were way different than what he is allowing me to do after surgery, such as going back to work in 2 1/2 weeks rather than 6 - 12 weeks. I was excited to go back to work last week and thought I was ok, but my body is telling me differently now.
