One idea that typically works well is to have your surgery on a Thursday and take the next week off work. That way, you can easily go back early if you’re feeling up to it, but you don’t feel pressured to go back before you’re ready.
Another thing to keep in mind is how physical your job and normal activities are. A good guideline is not to lift anything, and certainly nothing heavier than a gallon of milk, for the first week after surgery. If you have small children running around or your work involves heavy lifting, you may need to have more help during your recovery or more time off.
