When to return to work?

On Monday I will be 5 weeks post op. How time flies. I have had a very good recovery - some back aches, some sleepness nights, some pain, but really I can't complain much. But now I am wondereing when I can or should return to work.

My appointment with Dr. is this Wed. and I thought of trying to go back to work the following Monday. I will then be 6 weeks post op. But I am still pretty tired - If I go out for several hours a day, I come home exhausted and nap for hours.

Just wondering what some you other ladies did? I have a desk job - but it is a 1 person office - so I would be on my own. It takes me about 30 minutes to drive one way to work. Maybe going back part time would be best - if I can swing it. Any advice?

When to return to work?

Sandy. I went back 1/2 days at 7 weeks and that was about all I could handle. I came home each day exhausted and ready to climb back in bed...which I did

Talk to your dr. at your follow up appt. and see what he/she recommends. My dr. gave me release to go back to work at 6 weeks..but I sure didn't feel like it..so waited another one before venturing back to the work world.

When you do go back...you'll need to take things SLOW and EASY.

Good luck and keep us posted.
