Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Worried about scs trial movement restrictions! Holy macaroni!
I have my trial scheduled for the 13th - this upcoming Wed. My doc has asked me to keep working and going about my daily activities in as normal a way as possible during the trial. But when I looked up the movement restrictions on the internet, I came up with.....
•Do not drive. Limit riding in the car to those trips that are absolutely necessary.
•Do not raise your arms above your head.
•Do not twist, bend, or stretch your body at the waist. When rolling over, keep your body straight. Sitting in a chair is fine as long as you are careful.
•Do not make any sudden movements.
•Do not lift items weighing more than 5 pounds.
•Do not strain when moving your bowels. Take laxatives if needed
Yikes! Is this a really "conservative" list or is this really what I have to look forward to for a week?
What's really true? I had planned on driving to work every day. Did anyone else drive? Go to work daily? Were you in alot of pain the day after the test unit was installed? What happens if you do make the lead move?
Finally, do you have any words of wisdom for me? Warnings? Things that might have taken you by surprise - that you weren't anticipating? Thanks for your help. Kathy
