Well, today is my first day back to work post surgery.  It's not even noon & I'm soooo tired!  I basically didn't do much for 6 weeks --- my body just isn't used to this.  For anyone else who has been off for an extended time, how long did it take you to get back in the swing of things?

Hi Lorraine, It will get better with time, I found it really tiring at first and really stuggled, My boss could see i wasn't coping to well and made me work for only 3 hours one week then the next week 4 hours and so on till I got back to my full time hours It was so much better that way than trying to go straight back in to working full time.
