LSH, how long are you taking off of work?

I plan on taking 2 1/2 weeks, but I may take more. My doc gave me clearance for up to 5. I work at a computer all day, so there is no heavy lifting/strenuous work involved. I actually have a meeting next Wednesday I SHOULD attend, and that would be 2 weeks out, but I am going to skip it. Work will be there when I return. I had my op on 3/12 and plan to return on 4/1 (or maybe 4/2). I am feeling better today than I had been, so hopefully this is a good sign.

LSH, how long are you taking off of work?

I had my LSH on a Thursday and went back to work part time the following Tuesday, full time by the following Thursday. I work at home and have flexible hours, so I took naps when I needed it. Fatigue was really my only problem, oh and a tender spot when sitting that was solved by using a Boppy as a cushion.

Although, if I worked in an office, I would think that 3 weeks was really my recovery time. It was almost magic, I woke up the morning of exactly three weeks since surgery feeling almost 'normal'.

I had a LAVH. I'm a nurse too. After talking to my doc about what my job involves he said definately to take six weeks. I do a lot of lifting/bending that I cannot avoid.

At 11 days out I couldn't even answer the phone today when work called to check in. Just let the machine pick it up- I was too tired to think of talking to anyone.

I have to ask, what is a "boppy"?

It's actually a horshoe shaped pillow sold for use with infants. I used my while nursing to help support the babies. It's funny cause I told my hubby that I wanted one of those 'donut' cushions, he went down to the basement and brought it out of one of the baby boxes.

Ah, I see. I never breastfed, so that word was lost on me.

Speaking of donut cushions. I spent two nights in the hospital when my daughter was born. On the second night, they served us a steak dinner for two....it was also Thanksgiving night. We ate and then took a walk. I told my now ex that I wish I had a donut. His response....."We just had a full dinner and pumpkin pie...how on earth can you be thinking of donuts?" LOL!!!!!

I had a LAVH Feb. 12, went back to work after 4 weeks for 5 hours and it was tough.. I'm a hairstylist and am on my feet most of the time. The second week I have been working 8 to 9 hours and my stomach is on fire...also, I have a little bump on the right side about 1 inch bellow my bellybutton and it hurst when I move, right now, after a long day at work once again my stomach is on fire, more the right side. So now I'm wondering if I'm standing too long and maybe I should have waited with gpoing back to work..
