I do hope you have some time to relax and clear your mind of your job at least for a few days before your surgery! And stay away from your job and anything to do with your job after your surgery. You will need some major healing and recuperating time and the least amount of stressors that you can possibly have! Your body will be recovering from a major assault! What your having done is not just your ordinary toenail repair job! So be good to yourself and take it EASY!!! Your work will still be there when you get healed up and are ready to go back to work! So do not rush it!! Just get healed up and better! Ok no more Lecturing!
Seriously we are all here for you, just take care of yourself!
