I am scheduled to have neck surgery on July 2. # 2 and # 3 simple fusion; a bit more required at # 5. I am a high school English teacher. I need to be able to return to school one month from the surgery (almost at the 5 week mark but not quite). I realize this will mean returning to school with a brace, but I am praying to be able to return at this time. Does anyone have any experience with returning to a low-physical movement job this soon? Any other comments or suggestions?
