Any physician mommies who have had a TT?
Byon 20 Mar 2011
Good morning! I am an almost 40 yo woman who is thinking of having a TT, BR and flank/hip lipo in June. I have 2 young kids (6 and 3). My mother will be coming in to help for at least 2 weeks. I work part-time as a pediatrician and will only really be able to take 2.5 weeks off at the most. My plan is to do the surgery on a thurs or friday, take the following 2 weeks completely off and then the first 2 days of the following week. I return to work on a Wed (a full day) and then a half a day on Thursday and then I will be off again for the weekend (then to return to my normal schedule the following week). I will be on my feet a lot during work (walking back and forth to exam rooms) and need to examine children (though don't have to lift them). Anyone out there done this or have thoughts as to whether this is realistic? I unfortunately will never be able to take off 4 weeks consecutively...and I really want the surgery! Thanks!
