I need a spinal fusion, but am very worried because everyone around here makes it seem like you need to take months and months off from work. My surgeon said I would need to take 6 weeks off from work.
How are people able to do this? I have about 3 weeks of paid time off, after that, I would have to bite the bullet and go unpaid. I have a mortgage, 2 cars, and credit card debt. I can't go without a check, but this back pain is driving me INSANE.
How do you all do it? Any ideas?
