Laparoscopic hysterectomy ~ concerned about returning to work

I had a lypo partial (keeping ovaries and cervix) on the 27th. I'm due to go back to work on the 14th and I don't think I will be able to. At the least, I have tons of gas and gas pains. I'm also very emotional and tired. We won't even talk about the hot flashes. I haven't driven much as the doc said not to do it until after the appointment on the 11th but even when riding in the car, I get exhausted. I drive 45 minutes each way to work and I work in a call center dealing with people's 401K plans. I can barely pay attention to a 30 minute sitcom much less some one's retirement plan. I think the doc will give me more time but I won't know until Friday. If he doesn't, I don't know what I am going to do.

Frostbite, you are not alone.

frostbite-concerned about returning to work

I am new to this happy I found it. I had a supracervical hysterectomy on Dec. 10th. I just returned to teaching high school on Jan. 7th. So far...not too bad.

I am glad I took 4 weeks off. I had some minor complications and had to be put on antibiotics twice during my time off. I can't imagine returning before 4 weeks off. Listen to your body!!

Take care and good luck with work-
