So.... My Dr and his bitchy MA have now screwed up my leave of absence paperwork THREE times, and since our corporate whatever-their-titles-are in HR can't see that "OK to go back to work on 9/19 but don't drive in the sling you're wearing until 12/9 and don't use your left arm AT ALL until 12/9" just doesn't make sense. So, for the first time since surgery, I have had horrible pain - being in a sling while standing for 8 hrs makes you hurt from the ribs up, shoulders, arms, neck, upper back, you name it.
The incredibly stupid in this little rant? Surgeon, MA, HR person, and ME - for giving into the demand to go back!!!
