I was wondering when everyone was told that they could return to work? I had an open discectomy on September 30th, and my discharge papers said return to work in 2 weeks.
I have a job where I literally sit for 8.5 hours straight. I can't even sit for 10 minutes straight because of pain! My other issue with returning to work is that I have complete foot drop on the right side, and left side weakness. I am still using a walker to get around because these haven't even begun to resolve, and my work is not handicap accessible. i would have to lift the walker up 3 stairs to get in to my office.
Has anyone else been told that they can sit for that long so soon after surgery? The nurses in the hospital were shocked that he is sending me back so soon!
