my fear

My fear is going back to work after 6 weeks and I work two jobs one job is 35 hours and the next job is 18 hours and when I talk to different people they all have different things to say and how I should feel. I'm scared and confused Marbear.

Hi marbear,
How are you feeling? I would encourage you to really assess how you feel this week and then try to envision what you will be doing next week. If you can't see yourself being able to do it, than you probably shouldn't try.
Most drs will say to begin adding in activities when you are released at 6 or 8 weeks. This time frame is an average. Everyone is different in how quickly they heal and even then we are all still healing to some extent at that point.
If your job requires lifting or straining or being on your feet long hours you might want to ask your dr if there could be some restrictions put on what you do for a time so you can work back into your normal routine. I hope you can work it out so you don't hurt yourself, but can ease back into your jobs at a rate you can handle.
Good luck.
's, Rita

my fear

I work 2 jobs as full time, one part-time. I returned to my full time job at 7 1/2 wks. (sit down desk job). I was able to get up and walk around if I got sore from sitting too long. I did not return to my part-time job (stand up) until I was 3 mo. post op. Even then, they worked with me and made sure I had a chair to sit down when needed. It took awhile on the part-time job because standing in one spot all day was very hard (front desk at State Museum). From my experience, standing or sitting too long made my incision area very achey and sore. Other than that, I felt fine. Everyone heals at a different rate...I would advise that you take as much time as you feel you need to heal. Even though 6 - 8 wks is the initial healing period, your body will continue to heal for about a year.

Best wishes and take care! Life is good!

Thanks for the encouragement. My first job is helping kids at school. My second job is helping disabled people with their life like cooking cleaning laundry and anything else. Thanks Marbear

Marbear, I just want to say that you are a saint for all the work you do. Please ease into things if you can and rest any time you get the chance.
Please don't put up with the weight #[email protected]#*!! You should get another doctor, or put him in his place. I put up with the same thing for too long. Sure excess weight isn't healthy, but it isn't the root of all evil!
You take care of everyone else, but remember to take care of YOU too!
