Back to work in 8 hours



  • How are you doing with being back at work? I was hoping to get back to work next week but my NS has postponed my appointment until the 19th. I am almost 5 months post-op.I have very mixed feelings about trying to go back. I will have to lift on heavy packages and trays of mail. I just don't want to back slide. I hope you are doing well and please check back in and let us know how you are doing.

  • Hi Kelly Jo, work is going okay. It is very tiring for sure and my back feels stiff and tired by the end of the day. But good news is no more limping, yay, so I can manage with a little pain. I ice on my break, and am being extra careful with good body mechanics. I am getting help with transfering patients off gurneys and such. Actually just doing it the correct way to begin with, so many nurses want to rush and put their backs in jeopardy in the process. Thanks for inquiring about me. I hope you continue to improve, and by all means take whatever time you need to recover. I took 3 extra weeks from the original plan of 12. I am working this weekend so got to get to sleep. Have a great weekend, >:D< Cali-Sue
