Hi ladies

Just thought I'd try and use this poll malarky!  ;D Just wondering how long it took everyone before they were back at work after their ops?  I know we've had various types of surgery from keyhole, laparospic to full abdominal myo.

Am interested to hear others experiences

Thanks chicks

Hi hun

6 weeks for me after a abdominal myo.  Felt fine after 2 weeks but don't think I should have gone back to work, enjoyed the time off!!!

Good luck hun x

Have answered your poll Minni - I was off 7 weeks - but that was more to do with the fact that I couldn't go back to work until I had my post op cons check up.
I maybe could have gone back a bit earlier - but going back to my sitty down admin job ft was really trashing for the first couple of weeks.
PS I had the myomectomy - if this helps.
Luv n hugs to all.

Hi Minni,

I have been off for 7 weeks so far.  I'm heading on holiday on 10th June and my Cons doesn't want me to go back to work until after my trip - it will end up being almost 12 weeks  ^eyes^ This is mainly due to the nerve in my groin being nicked - he thinks I'd be better staying of work until I can wear knickers  ^roflmao^

Hi,
I was off for 9 weeks - felt much better after 6-7 weeks but was going through a divorce :-X at the time and also a house move.....not easy!!!! :eek: Wanting to lug boxes but not allowed to!
I used to drive for an hour to get to work and to be honest I think I would have been off longer if I'd had to drive all that time there and back, or I'd have been asleep under my desk!!
Love
Karen
