Just hoping that some of you could give me your input on when I can get back to work after my June 1st da Vinci prostate removal operation-assuming (and hoping for) a typical recovery process
I work from my home and can scale back my work to really just be using a computer (sitting at a desk), going up and down stairs several times a day and answering the phone. I have 2 employees who can do any lifting. Since I am at home, I can lay down and rest if necessary whenever there is the urge
I don't want to push things to the detriment of my health, but want to get back as soon as possible. Not only do I have 2 employees to keep employed (when I don't work, they don't work), I am in the middle of my busiest time of year and don't want to close down unnecessarily long.
My operation is the 1st of June , with planned release from the hospital on the 2nd. I was thinking of taking the 3rd off and starting back on the 4th.
Is this realistic?
I just want to try and plan ahead and give my employees an idea of what may happen-I told them I would give them two days off paid, but after that the days off would not be paid. They also know that even though I will estimate when I will be back in the swing of things, it ultimately depends on my condition and not on a date I set beforehand.
