Had one several months ago from work. Workers comp Doc said no riding for 6 weeks so I was not in a position to cheat and ride before my time was up. Regardless, two weeks is too early and chance undoing the surgery.
I had the left side done 17 years ago and went back to work after 2 weeks but it was either that or lose the shack and go hungry. And yes that was tough. Now I have short term disability. Yesterday I think I was lucky, and I am going to lay low for now.
