Re: Anyone Else Self-Employed and Worried About Lack of Income in Recovery?

I am self employed/contracted as well. I only took my surgery day off and have been working since I was released. I'm a property manager so things aren't too bad on me. It's pretty much part time hours. I'm one of the lucky ones that don't have any issues with recovery according to my doc.

Re: Anyone Else Self-Employed and Worried About Lack of Income in Recovery?

I am self-employed, too, but it is a seasonal business that is closed during the winter (campground), so I don't have an income right now to miss anyway.

We start gearing up for spring in March, so I'm hoping that I'm recovered enough to help out, and even more so by April when we start to get busy. We have some sleeping cabins that we supply the bed-linens for, and it's going to be interesting changing up to 14 beds in a day with swelly-belly going on.

Had all of this been discovered during the season, I would have just endured until off-season. There really wouldn't have been any other way to do it.

I too am self employed but realized I need the time to heal, if not I would be back to stage 1 of healing, having a hard time getting by but doing the best I can.

Please don't get back to work to early for it will cause you to be off work longer, take the time to heal and hope for the best.

I am self employed and had LSH November 29th. I was back to work in 3 weeks. I did go in a couple of times during the 2nd week but got tired quickly. Just be sure to rest up a lot and you should be good to go back to work at the 3 wk. mark. Good luck!
