I'm wondering how long people generally get off of work for complex spinal surgery (meaning something beyond a single level fusion- multi-level fusions or 360 degree fusions, etc)?
I am mostly just wondering when I should start expecting myself to do more, and since I don't have a paying job I never got a note from my doctor (well, he signed me off of Jury Duty for 6 months, but I doubt he would have kept me out of work that long!)
I hear people going back to work in 2, 4, 6 weeks and honestly at 5 weeks out I can't imagine. I can move around fine, but I am still so tired, every little thing takes a lot out of me! I am trying to decide whether to delay going back to school until summer or even fall.
