Time off of work

I am having a TAH, keeping ovaries on Nov 4th. I was hoping to go back to work after 3 weeks part time. I have a job where i do get to sit but also get to get up and walk around when needed. Am I crazy to think this is possible?

Re: Time off of work

Hi, Roxypo,
I am still trying to figure that out myself; my dr said not before 6 weeks (I am an elementary teacher, so on my feet a lot.) Lots of people have said to go back part time the first week. Is that an option for you?

Re: Time off of work

I can tell you both, unless you are super women no way. I was off the full 6 weeks and I have a desk job and it was still very hard.
Good Luck.

Wizzie,
Do you think 6 weeks, then 2 weeks of half days might work for me?
Thanks!

Good Luck.
My doc told me 4-6 weeks, 6 weeks being realistic. I also have a desk job, TAH in one week.

My boss had a TLH four weeks ago. She thought she would be back at work in two weeks and she's just now back.

Forgot to tell you all that I am self employed with no disability benefits that is why I need to get back back asap. Some of my friends do call me super woman!!!!!!

Hysteranna,

Yes, that is pretty much what I did. In my case I could get my feet up at work, I had a little stool under my deck. But I was still really tired, and it took me a while to get back into the swing of things. But I also had a great boss, who always said if you need to go home go.

Hi roxy,

That is a very tough spot to be in I would be concerned about pushing yourself too soon and causing complications.

Roxy,
Be careful not to overdo it! Thanks to the rest of you for the realistic time lines; only people who have been there know what tired really feels like.
My boss said to take the time I need, and I have stockpiled lots of sick days over the years, so I am concerned about going back too quickly.

Roxy,

Maybe if you took it really easy, like 1/2 hour at a time, rest and so fourth.
It will depend on you and how you feel cause we are all different.
