Going back to work next week

Next week Monday marks two weeks post op. Since Im doing so well my Dr and I decided Im going to try to head back to work. My job pretty much consists of sitting at a desk all day with no lifting. Im nervous to be going back so soon but it feels like a waste for me to be off anymore. Im feeling great.

Re: Going back to work next week


Some women find that sitting all day puts a lot of pressure on the vaginal cuff. So make sure that you get up and walk around to relieve pressure.

You may find that you are more tired and swollen after a day of work than you expect right now. If possible you may want to try out some half days before going to a full day.

My work is very flexible. If Im having a rough time i can go home. I do have a project I can work on at home so aim hoping Ill be ok. Going back may change though since I started bleeding more today despite doing nothing for the past several days.

Re: Going back to work next week

Wishing you the best. I went back yesterday after almost five weeks and sitting in my chair is killing me. I get up and walk every hour and felt so ready to go back, until the end of yesterday. Today I woke up feeling like I was back in week two and pushed through the day, but man it is uncomfortable. I am sore, stiff and crampy. We will see how I feel in the morning. I told dh if it hurt like today I would stay in bed. Work will just have to wait.
