Re: Surgery Thursday, back to work Monday?

I agree with so many posts. I just don't see how you will be able to go back to work that soon. I don't think it will be good for your body, your job or your patients. I had DaVinci 9/20 (I'm overweight as well) and I feel great, but my stamina is about 3-4 hrs. I can get up and do a few light things around the house, but then I'm so tired and ready for a nap. Sitting isn't always comfortable because of clothing rubbing on the incisions. Walking too much makes my belly feel heavy and almost lightly crampy.

You only get one chance to heal. By staying home, you will save gas money and lunch money, so maybe that will help somewhat with finances. Or use some vacation days to supplement part of the time off.

My Dr said a few of his patients went back in 7-10 days but they were 'work from home at the computer' people. I'm a bank teller and he wanted me to take atleast 4 weeks because of the standing, and bending and lifting of heavy coin boxes and such. He doesn't even do post-op visit until 4 weeks.

Best wishes to you on your decision. I know it can't be easy to have a plan and then ask your question and have others make you rethink your plan. But I agree with others, it's better to take care of yourself now, than do damage and have to recover longer later.
