Returning to work
I am six weeks post two level lumbar fusion with instrumentation. I am still in a fair amount of pain. I work in a rough school. Would it be reasonable/wise to take 4 or 5 months off to give myself a decent chance of healing and getting fit? I am not able to to stand for very long and ache constantly. I know many people are back to the office within weeks. My job is often very physical and I want to be right before I go back. I have a high grade spondylosthesis which has given me a lot of pain for 15 years.
