My doctor said that I should be able to return to work in 2 weeks. I am now worried about whether I will be able to return to work in 2 weeks. It is ambulatory surgery but I was told that I must rest for the surgery to correct the condition and to heal properly. It is important that I return to work in 2 weeks, has anyone had this surgery and can you tell me if you think that I will be ok in 2 weeks? Thanks for your help!
Your doctor will have a good idea about when you can return to work.
You will need to avoid activities that require hard work for 5 to 6 weeks after your procedure. This includes lifting heavy objects and doing things that make you very tired.
What do you do for a living? I sure wouldn't want to have it done and go to work in 2 weeks, but I have to lift heavy patients. My Mom had it done, and she did well, but she wasn't working, so i don't know how fast she would have been able to go back.
OCEAN your doctor says 2 weeks and what i just read they say also you can shower in 1 to 2 days after surgery and be back to work in 2 weeks,the new surgery is not as invasive as the old type and much more effective with less problems,now even after 2 weeks you can be in discomfort for 3 to 6 weeks possiblely and we all heal different you would be under light duty slow on stairs this is all i could find sounds promising,maybe call the on call nurse and verify what your doctor has said also he or she would know because a doctor doing this kind of surgery usually does many... check it out don't worry Chuck retired cpht pharmacy technician.
