Pre-op jitters

I just returned from my hospital pre-op and I am starting to feel nervous for the first time. I will be having a total abdominal hyst. and bladder suspension. I am concerned about having to return to work 3 weeks post-op. I work for a non-profit and don't have any disability or extended medical benefits. My boss has been great and has given me an extra week of vacation (in addition to the two I have earned) but I'm worried about feeling well enough to return to work. I can't afford to take time off without pay? Any suggestions from those who have come before me?

Pre-op jitters

I'm actually coming after you (May 23), but was wondering if your boss would let you do some work from home. I work for a state university and only have four weeks of vacation/sick/comp time. The last two weeks of my recovery period, they have agreed to let me work at home, and have found several projects for me to do, as well as loaned me a laptop to work on until I return.

See if maybe this would be an option for you. Or maybe you could work half days until you're ready for full time. (Though I guess it would depend on the type of work that you do. If you dig ditches, for example, it would be kinda hard to take your work home with you. )

(I'm also taking any extra money I have right now and paying my bills in advance.)

Best wishes and lot's of s,
