I'm having surgery on 8/31 and will be back to work on 9/5. alma said I should be fine as I have a desk job. Also, several peep I've talked to here went straight back to work with few problems.

I did tell my HR Manager just incase I do need to call in sick, but I'm not anticipating it.

Thanks everyone alma is great spoke to her and also said I would be ok one on the 5 latest 6th day she did say everyone is different but I'm also not anticipating any complications I'm a nurse and I pass meds so I don't do heavy lifting and I would be able to sit for small breaks. Nonetheless I'm praying and hoping I would be just fine I know It might not be the same but I endured a lot of pain when I delivered my daughter no anesthesia what so ever and pushed her out in 15 minutes was on my feet the next day due to my daughters condition but I'm hoping a similar recovery ????

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
