going back to work 4 days before post-op..

I'm so relieved that you decided to wait I know it's hard to stay home when the pennies are getting hard to find, but, as you mentionned, you don't want to jeopardize your recovery for the sake of 4 days... and 10 hour days sounds very, very harduous. I don't know if I would be able to tough it out even without recovering from surgery.

Hang in there ((((sweetie)))) you're almost through.

I am so glad you decided to wait. There is a reason that they give you a certain amount of time to stay off work. And from knowing this additional information, I must pass it on to you or anyone else thinking of going back before the doc says so. If you return to work without your docs permission or before your release, and something happens to you that requires medical care because of it, your insurance company can deny that claim---and I have seen it done and you dont' want that bill, trust me.

Hi coffee, I may be facing what you've just had, and I've
already had 3 surgeries since my hyst, I went back to
work too early everytime, because of the pressure not
to be out. The Dr.s say do what you feel like, well you feel
pretty good until you've already compromised yourself.
I've worked in pain so much, to me that is normal. I wouldn't know what to go by, as far as doing what your
body tells you. But if I have this surgery, I am going to
try to use my short term disabilty, and stay out 3 mo.
I just can't keep having these surgeries, and I still don't
know that I will risk it. I am just hanging on by a thread
most days, I'm not sure if it is rectocele or not, but
something is definitely wrong with my rectum and bowels.
Some people say they don't have pain with this, but I
sure have. I know this is not an easy surgery to recover
from, and I would be willing to stand the pain if I just
knew that it would fix it, and stay fixed.
