Returning to work:
When you may return to your job depends on the nature of your work. If you have a desk job that does not require any lifting, you may be able to return to work within 1-2 weeks. If your job requires bending or heavy lifting, etc., you will be off of work for 6 weeks until you are completely healed. If you work inside the home, you will still have to be careful about heavy lifting, bending, exercising, and housework.
