Going back to work? (update)

Ps - I remember my doc originally told me after LAVH I would be almost good as new at 2-3 weeks! HA!!! No so fast. Sometimes I felt good, but it was so deceptive - It was so easy to overdo it!!!

Back to Work (update)

Hi guys, Happy New Year. Just to let you all know I returned to work 7th Dec after 3mths, my blood work showed that I was aneamic, my energy level was so low that I could just about get down stairs in the morning. I'm on my third course of Iron with folic acid and my blood count is slowly creeping up. I'm off work again for another 6 weeks as it all got a bit too much for me, my uniform was so uncomfortable, even a size bigger did not help anything accross my tummy was agony, my incision hurts now that the numbness has worn off. I really thought that I would be back to normal by now.

Concerning your side pain, I too, am having right side pain but went to Doc yesterday for 7 week post-op eval and he said to take Motrin that it was nothing to worry about. Said it may be up to 6 months before I am feeling like myself again. I think it is part of the healing process. A lot of cutting and stitching during surgery. Just do what you can do, get a lot of rest and if the pain is too extreme, then seek medical advice. I go back to work tomorrow and am hesitant regarding that. If I get too tired, I will come home. I am used to sleeping until 8 or 9 and 5:00 will come early tomorrow!!! Wish me luck.

Good luck returning to work....I return next Tuesday and am a little nervous.I am use to sleeping in also and have to be at work early,as well as a lot of heavy lifting. I am sure we will both be fine but will keep us both in prayer.

I returned to work on Thursday at 5 weeks and I did fine. I also have to be at work really early and was used to sleeping in. I started getting up earlier each day until I was up at my normal time and I haven't been tired.

Good Luck to everyone returning to work!!
