My Recovery: Returning to Work Postop

  1. Oh boy, I feel your pain! I’ve had three laparoscopies for endometriosis. The first one I returned to work a week later and it was rough (and I also got my period that week, how funny is that?) The second one was excision surgery and I took a full three weeks off and going back was still hard. I’m a hospital pharmacist, so I’m moving around all the time. The third one was in the middle of this six month medical leave I’m currently on. I’m glad you’re able to work shorter shifts the next couple days. Rest up as best as you can! You’ve got this!💛

    1. Wow. You are a super woman. I’m sorry you have gone through so much, but I know it made you so strong. I slept a full ten hours last night, so hopefully today I’ll be better rested. The next two short shifts should help too. Thanks for the encouragement. 😊

  2. You’ve had a rough ride there. It is exhausting and I don’t think anyone can really know how your body is going to cope after having surgery. I didn’t feel like I truly had my energy back for a couple weeks. I work a desk job but worked from home for the week after. My doctor who did the surgery didn’t want me to drive for a week. I have major respect for you to have gone back to being on your feet working. Be extra kind and gentle to yourself. This takes a while for your body to get back up to speed. 🙂 🙂
