I went for my check-up today and everything is healing fine. My pathology report came up neg. for pre-cancerous or cancerous cells. That was a relief!!! They found that my uterus was full of adhesions which possible caused me all that suffering I endured for the past year. As for my emotional roller coaster I've been riding, he prescribed Celexa, I was on it a month before my surgery and it helped me then a lot. So I'm sure it will again. Last but not least, I was worried about returning to work at 6 weeks, I was really sick over it, I didn't know how I was going to do it. Today he extended my LOA for 2 more weeks, which puts the factory in the middle of their X-mas shut-down so I don't have to return to work til Jan. 2. There was know way I would have been able to do the physical part of my job which is lifting 20-50 lbs. wheels all day long. I'm so glad I have an understanding Doc.

I'm so excited..... I just had to tell you girls, as you can tell these are one of my good days.

That is good news. Now rest, relax and enjoy the rest of your time off.

Everyone should have this...

What great news. I personally believe that a doctor should always sign our requests for extended leave from this type of surgery. After all, said doctor, is not walking around in THIS body doing THIS work. We are.

I am so glad you have the additional time off to heal. I wish this could be true for everyone who needs it.

I can totally relate to your stress over going back to work too soon! I had my preop appt. on Monday. My Dr. is a stickler about time off (like my disability payments are coming out of her pocket or something). I work for Mack Trucks, on the assembly line building trucks. I climb over 6 foot truck frames bending over the rail with a 20 lb. airgun repititiously (we do 29 trucks per day at 15 minute intervals). Although I was almost 8 wks. post op, I knew there was NO WAY I would be able to do my job.
She sat there arguing with me that the time off for a hyster is 6 WEEKS. I was really getting upset and angry and finally she said, she would release me at 4 hours per workday until the day after Christmas and then back to full days. (we too have shutdown from Christmas till New Years).
I was not happy and still wondering how on earth I was going to handle 4 hours. A simple twist of fate took care of that. Mack will not let me come back until I am released for an 8 hour work day. Had she released me on light duty, they would have had me come back, but since I was released for 4 hours at my regular job, I can't. So I will stay on full disability until the first of the year.
It's pretty sad that a company who doesn't give a rats butt about it's employees (if it wasn't for the Union we'd be screwed) has more sense about my recovery then my OWN Dr!
