Back to Work After Surgery??
Hi all. My double mastectomy with reconstruction is scheduled for a week from today (1/4). I currently work full-time from home for a hospital system doing desk work that is completely not physical other than some typing/mouse usage. I have had several other surgeries (4 minimally invasive back surgeries, although one included a spinal fusion with rods and screws) and a robot-assisted lap partial hysterectomy. I recovered very quickly and relatively easily from both, but this surgery is definitely full-on invasive! My question is, do you think two and half weeks of complete rest will be enough to return to desk work at home? I can take as many breaks as I want/need (my boss and team are very supportive) and I don't have to look presentable, LOL. I can wear my robe or pjs if need be.
Has anyone else had any experience with the timeline of going back to work at a desk job following this surgery? Am I being unrealistic? Thanks in advance,
