Leave of absence

My doctor has filled out my paper work for my surgery and has submitted only 6weeks leave for abdomen hysterectomy. Doesnot seem sufficient.

Re: Leave of absence

I guess they would extend it after that if you're still needing additional leave. I know that I had to do this after my six weeks was up for an ovarian cyst removal, and it was easily accepted by my workplace.

Re: Leave of absence

I think 6 weeks is the norm, but as you get closer to your return to work date, you can get it extended if you need additional time. I just called my disability company and was advised of my 6 week approval and the need to have doctor supply additional paperwork to support a request for additional time. I'm hoping 6 weeks is enough. I'm 6 days post op and am already bored out of my mind.
