I feel yah!!!!!!!!

You are in the same situation as myself. It makes it even worse when your co-worker is lazy.....AND a man!!!!He is twice my size, and is able to lift those converters and modems and place them in the boxes.......STACKED up!!!!!but, he is so unhappy with his job, he has slacked off from helping out. This has happend before my leave, and it has not changed(per folks coming in to relieve me). I am having the urinary problems (both test were negative regarding infections),I have taken stool softeners,even left that alone and started drinking more fiber (prune juice). Bowel passing hurts soooooooo bad!!I am still in pain!!!!!!I was scheduled for work today, but could not due to not having the proper doctors note (see previous posting)
Well, God Bless you.....If you are NOT feeling like yourself, stay at home if you can!!(Heck, I need to follow my own advice)
Be Blessed..........

Going back to work....uggh!

Blessed66, I hope you start to feel better but you are right. I've heard from others that it actually does take up to 6 months to a year before you will feel like yourself. Yesterday, I went back to church and I had company after church and by 8 o clock last night, I could hardly move I was in so much pain and the pain is all in my back, hip joints and front lower abdomen. Then to get up for work after not sleeping all night awaking finally to my son being sick as well as myself makes me wonder how I'll handle 8 hrs working. But, like you said, the benefit office will only allow you but so much time off. Boy to be in England where they get 12 weeks!!!!! I'll keep you in prayer and you do the same for me as I try it again tomorrow. I don't want to use up all of my vacation!!

Going back to work....uggh!

I can completely understand where all of you are coming from, as I was there myself....I had my hystrectomy in Aug of 2003 and 100% absolutely dreaded going back to work. I am best friends with all of my co-workers, who were absolutely wonderful during my absence but the dread of returning almost ate me up inside. I ended up with bronchitis my very last week home before returning to work on top of everything. But once I got back into the swing of things (I do work in an office but it's in International business and very fast paced), I felt like a new person, bronchitis and all. I think the longer I was home, the more down I became because all I did was dwell on the return. I returned working a day, then a half day and so on the first week and then by the 2nd week, I was so happy to be back with the "real world", that it seemed to help both my body, mind and spirit heal a little better. It was hard, I was exhausted at night but I felt so much better.

It really does get better but the tiredness does take a while. I was told about a year before your body gets completely back to normal after the surgery and I firmly believe that! Of course, I ended up with a staph infection during my hospital stay for the surgery, it has lain dormant for a long time and has now showed it's self in the form of a heart infection..oh joy!

I will say a prayer for all of you, it does get better but just do not over do it!
