Your Healthcare provider would have informed you that you need to maintain your PTINR between 2.50 and 3.50. So long as you are able to be within this range and you are not expected to travel (by airplane) much, you can go back to work. However, please ensure that you don't get hurt (in an accident or otherwise) which could result in bleeding (both externally or internally).
Your level of pain... equipped with your doctor's approval will determine the right time to return to work. If you have a desk job, be mindful of getting up and moving around every hour or so to keep the blood circulating, and if it were me, I would wear my compression stockings daily.
