It's been a while since I have been on this site; I actually had to make a new profile. I work on a busy med/surg/onc unit and took 3 weeks off to get a tummy tuck and breast aug. My surgeon cleared me for work with the exception that I lift nothing heavier than 20 pounds for 6weeks po. I was going to call my nm to see what she thinks, but my biggest concern is pulling pts up in bed or max assist ambulation. Other than this, I feel that I will be able to perform my duties. I guess my concern is putting others out to help me with additional lift assist, etc. It would only be 3 weeks, but I hate the idea being less than I was before I left. What do you all think?
