Melodie you are doing great, I am so pleased to hear your good news. You are right to pace yourself on your return to work, take your time because pretty soon, it will be like you have never been away!!!Take care
NO, NO, NO !!!! I am not ahead of you...NO WAY! When I put down 3 months in my notes, it was because that is what my doctor had written on the order...but in reality it is my SIX MONTH check. SO, I am not ahead of anyone in getting back to work at my office...rather I am running behind so many others. But I think thats OK. I have to go at my own pace and so far it's working for me. I'm sure it will be challenging for me to manage my health concerns. Already I have found myself slipping back into my racing pace as I walk through our company factory and have had to talk myself into slowing down. If I am not careful I will be sorry. As it stands right now I am only putting in four hours for the first two weeks and then doing PT afterwards. I am being treated for pain in my leg, possibly as a result of the scar tissue from the surgery. I also learned that if during my sleep I press against my port that it causes my left hand to go numb and my therapist tells me that after I have it removed the scar tissue can also result in pain or numbness if pressed against the right nerve. What fun. Melodie
