Quick question, I just had my gallbladder out laparoscopically last week. I am a hospice on call nurse. I go in for my 1 weeks post op appointment today. I remember from the presurgery appointment that the surgeon had said no lifting more than 20 lb for an extended period of time, like 6 weeks or so. I am trying to decide if that is the case, how likely is it that I will be put into a position to lift with my job. Alot of times I don't have to go anywhere, just take phone calls, and if I attend a death I can have the funeral home move the body, but there are also times, like washing a body where I would need to turn people, or just to assist families in repositioning patients. <br>I have no idea what my work is going to say, I am waiting to get instructions from the surgeon today, any thoughts?
