2 weeks off??

I was only going to take 1 week off after my daVinci but just found out my Dr. wants me to take 2 weeks off. I think I will go with her suggestion but not working for 2 weeks at both jobs might make me stir crazy.

Is 2 weeks a standard time before going back to work?

Re: 2 weeks off??

Make no mistake, the daVinci is still MAJOR surgery and you need time to recover. I had the daVinci on Friday and it has definitely been an easier recovery than I had anticipated, but, reading many stories here, mine sounds textbook...many have not been so lucky. My doctor told me to plan on 4 weeks off and that I could possibly go back sooner if I felt up to it, but he signed me off for the full 6 weeks too, in case I need it. I don't know what type of work you do, but, I think 2 weeks would be the absolute minimum.

I was told six to eight weeks. I'm almost at two weeks and I'm very tired.

Hi there! I was told two weeks off for recovery from an LSH. (Actually, my GYN said I could probably go back after one, but encouraged me to take two if I was able. He said most of his patients don't need to take more than 2 weeks off for this procedure.)

I had daVinci 4 weeks ago, left ovaries, 5 small incisions. My doctor said 6 weeks which was extended to 10 weeks after an infection pot-op.

I know what you mean!!

I'm at week 4 post op, but have not worked since the end of April due to another medical condition and the fact that I was made redundant by my employers because of my ill health.

Daytime TV and art and craft work don't quite fill in for a mentally stimulating full time job.

I'm hoping to get clearance to start working again soon!!

Re: 2 weeks off??

I am returning to work on 9/6. I will be 2 weeks and 1 day Post OP. I have a desk job and I am absolutely feeling up to going back. I kept my cervix and both ovaries and from what I have read that makes a dramatic difference in the recovery process. I am also 30 and in great health other than the uterus which is no longer an issue. If I get back to work and see that it is going to be a problem, I will take a few more days off, but I don't see that happening. I can already tell a huge difference in how I feel now and how I was feeling before the surgery. I am starting to go stir crazy
