Great idea, JoEllen. I know my co-workers are are struggling to pick up the slack while I'm out. I will definitely bring a "thank you" box of chocolates or something when I return.

I'm so sorry you have to go through this, it's so hard to feel guilty all the time. I'm currently working about 20 hours a week from home, and I find that very difficult.........and that's with the ability to lay back with my laptop, take naps and frequent breaks, take naps, etc. And I STILL feel guilty, although my boss has been great, and I'm pretty much getting all the big important stuff done - I'm not there.

DH says not to worry - do what I can do and that's it. I don't want to end up needed another surgery or more pain or problems down the road because I didn't take the time I needed to heal properly.

Hang in there Ladies, it's a cruel world!!!!

Be careful about visiting the workplace while you are out on disability. I was warned years ago when I had my daughter that I should NOT visit the office. It can violate your disability claim if your boss feels that since you were healthy enough to come visit the office you should be healthy enough to come to work.

Also, remember that your return date is up to the doctor and not your boss. If your boss gives you a hard time just say something like, "I'll check with my doctor to see when he will release me for work and get back to you". There may be requirements of your doctor sending in paperwork keeping the company appraised of your status. But under no circumstances can the boss dictate when you are to return to work.

You are welcome. I like your idea of bringing in something to say thank you to your co-workers. That will go a long way with them.

"build a bridge and get over it"

bosses can be such bullies. if you have an HR dept and if it gets to that point, don't hesitate to use them. that's what they are there for.

good luck and i hope you have a great, healthy, speedy recovery!

My doctor said the most important thing to me: This is the only time I have to heal. It is not like we take a leave of absence all the time!

if she thinks that you are "faking" your recovery time -- going to the the office ony would re-inforce that in her mind.

Because she can not see the internal healing -- nor see how the toll of the day makes you sleepy and tired.

As much as you would love to see everyone -- if it were me -- I would stay away .

The HIPPA laws are in place to protect YOU. Under no circumstances should she be calling your doctor.

I thought I'd be a smarty and went back to work two weeks post op. I was a wreck! I took an additional two weeks off to heal and still didn't fell 100% when I went back.

Because your job is so demanding, you need to take that time off so your body can heal.

BW to you!

besides the pain, i'd probably be hopped up on percoset all day, and in the bathroom crying my eyes out. not too productive.... not a good idea to go back too early.
