My fortnight hospital note after my lap and cystoscopy ended Monday so I went in to work yesterday. Omg it was so painful on my left incision wound in my office chair. First painkillers 30 minutes after sitting down and I could barely walk by the end of the day. I arranged to wfh today which my employer is good about. When I got home I called the hospital to see if there was a problem with my stitches. They told me to up the pain relief and rest.
I had a bad night sleep and when I woke up I felt awful, cold , shakey exhausted and weak with jelly limbs and couldn't think for brain fog. By 9.30 I'd not even managed to wash shower or get dressed let alone walk the poor dog so I reported in sick. I asked the gp surgery for a telephone consult and went to bed. Slept almost solidly through to 3 pm !! The gp called at half three and signed me of for another fortnight. I am really down in the dumps and low.
Just feeling like Christmas and everything is passing me by. I'd had nothing much to do at work the day before as I've been out of the loop so long and felt useless. Also I am due to start a new role with a new manager in the new year. I was due to have my appraisal Friday and meet my new boss that day too. Now I'm gonna have to tell her about my operation which I'd hoped to avoid, at least till I had established myself, and miss my first deadline to write my goals for the year.
Sorry for whinging. Just really totally fed up with it all, I'd felt better till I went back. It feels like quite a set back and leaves me in sort of a limbo worrying about my review and unprepared for the new job, which is a promotion so giving me performance anxiety already.
