Hi Cheryl,

I had a laperoscopy in March, came home & cooked dinner for my family & my parents who were living with us at the time. The next day when the pain really hit me, I got little sympathy either! (My hubby did...but he is always going crook on me for doing too much after a procedure). I think it's a toughy...but perhaps you could have a quiet word with your boss, and explain that the surgery has taken a little more out of you than expected. Perhaps you could take a few days from your holiday and stay home and have a good rest. I hope you get relief soon.

Love, hugs & cheers
