Calling All Chemical Plant Operators, I& E, Contractors etc.

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious if there are any other Chemical Plant operators (or any other plant position) here working shift work who've gone through the sleeve and how your experience has been. With such a labor intensive job I am sure that recovery will be different than that of people with desk jobs or less labor intensive jobs. Im an Operator and My Husband is an I&E Tech, we will both be sleeved 7/9/19 and are planning to take off about 4 weeks due to the lifting restriction.

I worked on the railroad at the time and now I’m the oilfield. I took about a month off before returning. My biggest piece of advise would be start practicing early on Water consumption in small amounts. I returned to work and had to be taken to hospital first day for dehydration... the lifting I was very careful I made my job aware I was on light duty but personally didn’t tell them the reason. You guys will be fine just stay hydrated and lift smart!

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
