I'm as nervous as I can be - it's almost as if instead of just going to schedule it and talk about surgery, I'm having the surgery.
As a chuckle, one of the questions on my list is - will it hurt?
One of my biggest worries is how long I'll be out of work. From what he's told me, it's a big surgery, but I work from home, have a work laptop, and can work from any comfy spot in the house I want. It's not a physical job by any means, but I do notice I have to get up and move around a whole lot more than I used to before my back got so bad - sitting and focusing on a laptop can make you hurt - and even though part of my job means I need to understand how not to get hurt on the job and I understand office ergonomics - I can no longer work at my desk and chair. Hoping that will change in the near future. Anyway, once I'm out past 2 weeks, then it is short term disability at 60% of my normal salary and that to me is a big ouch! Hoping I can go back at 2 weeks - even though I'm spending 3-4 days in the hospital. Am I nuts?
I am who I am!
