Hi I have my lap booked in for next month and was just wondering who it is that actually signs you of work whether it’s for one week or two? I’ve had a lap before and when I asked the woman in my pre op assessment she was really dismissive like ‘oh you only need a few days off’. Now my last lap they literally only cut into me and realised my endo was more severe than what they thought so closed me up for another surgery where they could be more prepared and for that I needed a week off to recover. So I’m worried that this time I will need two weeks off without getting anything to show work that I need longer than a week off. So is it your gp that does it or the surgeon? Any help would be appreciated thanks.
