    6 weeks tomorrow since my surgery.

    Just want to work, want to get back to a routine, I can't even begin to explain how frustrating it is.

    People on the dole must have either an ability to enjoy being bored or some other trick up their sleeve cause I have a lot of devices to entertain and I'm bored of them all.

    I can't wait for my first day back, going to take it easy, earn some money and go home satisfied and relax how you're intended to relax, when you've deserved it. lol

    I know just how you feel as I was off work for a while after surgery a few years back.

    When did the doc say you can start back to work?

    6 to 8 weeks, but the earlier I go back to work, the higher the chance of recurrence so giving it the full 8.

    At least I can walk a bout a bit and do some light exercises but still bored out my box. lol

    How long were you off work for?

    Wowzers, I'd have gone bonkers!!!! ID ask what happened but that's your business. Doesn't it make you appreciate work though and being able to work?

    Smurf.......was it a window cleaning injury?.....what happened to your customers whilst you were sidelined. Did you have to start again.
    Masons......what are you doing about your customers?. Hopefully they will all be there when you return. All the best mate.....must be really difficult. Like you say, its good to relax at the end of the day having known you have grafted.

    Thanks mrtaytay, I have 3 other window cleaning companies looking after my work, they're all being great as it means when I go back it's all there.

    I'm seeing my surgeon on Monday and seeing what he say's.

    Can. Not. Wait. lol

    Thanks mrshine,I've been doing a few small walks a day, I'm meant to be able to work again in next couple of weeks it's just frustrating.

    Trying not to overdo things, don't wanna take steps back.
