Hey guys, I've noticed that a lot of guys who have returned to work quickly have desk type jobs. I on the other hand,am a construction worker. I install automatic fire sprinklers in commercial and industrial buildings,so I do a lot of HEAVY lifting. If any one else does a lot of heavy lifting in their line of work, please give me some kind of idea when you were able to return to work.
Right now the idea of picking up something heavy every few minutes and peeing myself, does not sound that glamorous. Nor the fact of changing pads in a port-o-let
Every minute you fish or ride,adds an hour to your life!
