Surgery Fri, new job, Dr releasing after a week?

Ok, I've been reading on here quite a bit. I'm scheduled for devinci hyst on Friday. My Dr said I should be released to drive and return to regular activities in A WEEK?!?! Does that seem too fast? At first I was really excited because I am transitioning to a new job, so this surgery couldn't be at a worse time. But now I am concerned after reading all your posts that one week is really too fast.
I'm VERY scared about this surgery. I've put it off for almost 6 years, but there is no more room for delaying it. This is my 4th opinion telling me I need to get this done. The possibility of the return of past cancer scares me worse than the surgery. So, it's time. I really don't have much time off from work because of the new job, but a week seems so fast. Now I am scared about the recovery too!!! :-(

Re: Surgery Fri, new job, Dr releasing after a week???

A week is definitely not long enough! I was still pretty tired until 3 weeks, just went to work yesterday and had a month off, i have to come home and put up my feet up and heating pad on my stomach.I was napping quite alot up to 2 weeks. It is major surgery even though it isnt as invasive.

I am in the same boat . I just started a new job 3 weeks ago and now have to have surgery . I was thinking on a week I could go back . But after reading on here it doesn't sound feasable.
