When’s The Best Time To Return To Work After Explant Surgery

For those questioning “is a week long enough to stay home from work?“… I want to remind you that healing requires a ton of energy and rest.
After a week you will most likely be sore, weak and tired. I know I was.
Antibiotics, pain pills, the body repairing and rebuilding tissue, and the surgery itself takes a toll on the body.
With that being said, though, every BODY is differentAnd it does make a difference what demands your job requires of you and what your mental and physical pain threshold is.
If you’re a:
  • hair dresser
  • school teacher
  • massage therapist
  • chef
  • gardener
  • personal trainer
  • taxi driver
  • inventory stocker
Basically, if you use your arms a lot or if you’re around people/kids for eight hours straight – it’s going to wear on you.
It’s not just the pain that you need to consider… it’s also the energy expenditure that’s required to heal your body as well.
Healing requires a ton of energy, lots of rest and good nutrition.
The only way to know if you’re ready to go back to work is to feel it out.
If you go back to work and you’re coming home completely mentally and physically exhausted, I can’t help but feel like it’s going to hinder and prolong your healing.

We want to hear from you!

  • How many days after surgery did you go back to work?
  • What kind of job do you have?
  • Do you wish you would’ve waited longer before returning?
  • What piece of advice do YOU have for those concerned about going back to work so soon?
