Morning, i am having a partial knee replacement next month. I'm youngish (40s) for this op and fit and healthy otherwise. I am wondering what to expect in terms of activity i can do and just generally what 'state' i will be in the weeks post-op?
The main reason I am asking is that my employer has asked me to work from home for all/part of my recovery. I have been working from home since lockdown (I am a p/t office worker) due to having two kids aged 5 and 6 and no childcare. So it seems they are expecting me to continue this.
I will be signed off for 6 weeks and obviously cannot drive. I am also entitled to full pay during the sick leave so I will not lose out in this respect.
I am trying to understand if it is realistic to be expected to sit at a desk for 5-6 hours during those 6 weeks post-op or if they are being unreasonable expecting me to?
