Work Stress

I plan on working from home because I don't have a lot of sick leave but I'm feeling a lot of pressure to put in more time than I think I will be able to. Did anyone else have this problem? I don't want to be bored but I do want to rest but I have no idea how I'm going to feel and I don't know if the surgery is going to make my lupus act up or not. I didn't sleep at all last night. I see my doctor today for my final pre-op instructions and surgery is next Thursday. I'm more stressed about work than the surgery. I can get time donated to me and HR says I should only worry about myself. If I work 4 hours a day (or stretch 20 hours over 7 days of the week) I can take off 3 weeks and not have to accept any donations. How tired was everyone?

Re: Work Stress

I'm not post-op yet so I can't answer about the tiredness. However, I am concerned about when you plan to start working from home. How soon after surgery do you plan to start working? I had the pre-surgical appointment with my primary care doctor today (to get clearance for surgery) & I told her how I was planning to work from home. She stressed that I should at least take the first two weeks to recuperate. she stated that I should be clear with my supervisor that I am not to receive any calls or anything from work during those first two weeks because I will need the time to heal.

Re: Work Stress

Wow, I was planning on logging on after I get home from the hospital either the weekend or the Monday after if I felt OK, I see the doctor today to find out, she never actually said how long to wait, she had only said I'd be out 2-3 weeks.

Re: Work Stress

It was a couple of weeks before I even felt up to sitting at the computer for more than a few minutes.

I went back to an office job at 6 weeks post-op. In retrospect, I should have taken 8 weeks.

Fatigue was a huge issue, and so was pain. But beyond that, I just didn't feel "well" enough to concentrate on anything more than running the remote on the TV.

Re: Work Stress

Glad I asked, if I need more time off I can get my form changed and request more donations of sick leave. I'm addicted to my computer so I go crazy if I don't get on it, I get on even if I have a migraine to at least check email. I'll let you know what my doctor says I leave in an hour to see her.
