How many days did you take off work after your orchi?

Ladies,

My orchi is in two weeks. I am not sure how many days to take off work after my surgery. I know everyone is different. Any post op suggestions is appreciated too. Hugs, Rebecca

My surgeon performed the orchiectomy on Friday and told me I could return to work on the following Tuesday.

Hi ya,

Hope all went well, how many days did you take off ?

I'm a contractor and managed to take off the day for op and day after to get home the WFH on a soft cushion

I had my orchiectomy performed on 10/27. I am now mostly recovered. The first three days were considerably painful. I had to support myself when standing up. I tried returning to work on the third day, but I felt like I was going to faint at work. I decided to take off 13 days. I think it also depends on your type of work. I'm constantly walking, lifting, bending, and in general on my feet. I would of had no time to sit down, and "ice" during those two weeks. I am extremely happy with my low testosterone levels.

I had the surgery on Thursday, and went back to work on Monday. I flew home on Sunday. I just made sure my work days that first week or two were easy.
