After a Tummy Tuck, How Long Will It Be Before I Can Do Ironing and Heavy Lifting?
I am due to have a tummy tuck on 3 July over here in London. I run an ironing business where I collect loads of laundry, iron it and then return it, sometimes all on hangers. How long should I realistically be off work. I know with a normal office job I could return within 2 weeks but as my job requires a lot of twisting etc while ironing as well as lifting heavy laundry, how long should I wait to go back to work?
Count on 4-6 weeks for full recovery
