Hi folks, just wondering if anyone has any advice please on how to manage returning to work after surgery. I go back to work on 8th Jan having been off since early November following laparotomy and surgery for stage 4 endometriosis, chocolate cysts and adenomyosis.
I'm midway through 3 month course of zoladex to give my system a break from endo, as we are meant to be starting IVF at some point. I'm almost there physically after surgery but am currently recovering from a severe 2-3 day migraine. I suffer from migraine normally and wonder if zoladex has made it worse or if I've just overdone it. The hot flushes are quite pronounced but I can handle them. The migraine has been so bad my normal triptan meds had no effect yesterday but have thankfully kicked in tonight.
I'll be starting work gradually using some annual leave before I'm quickly back to full time again. Just really worried about managing : the job is pretty full on and I already need to see occupational health when I go back. I felt constantly unwell before surgery and diagnosis and it takes so much to just keep on going at work.
In an ideal world I'd be able to give up work but it's not possible at the moment, just very anxious about managing all this and getting to grips with diagnosis.
Thank you XXXX
