How much heads up to you give a firm for a semi emgrecy medical procedure? I had a gallbladder attack and my doctor wants to remove it. It's not quite emgrecy surgery but not something they want to wait too long. My firm knows I was sick a day this week. How much heads up should I give them that I will be having surgery and might be out for a few days?

Why can’t you type emergency… tell them as soon as you know why wait

“I will be out this week as I have a unplanned inpatient surgery that I need to take care of”

I’ve had gallbladder surgery - you will need a few days. And if you’re lucky, after a few days you’ll go back to work at 100%. But more likely than not, it will take a few weeks for your body to get used to an entirely different way of processing food, so your energy (and mental abilities) will be reduced. My advice - tell them as soon as possible and help them expect the worst so that if you’re lucky and bounce back sooner, they’re delighted rather than disappointed that you over-promised and under-delivered

10 years ago today I had my tubes tied. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. It took years standing up to practitioners, reiterating my preference, and fighting for medical decisions over my own body. Ten years later and it was all worth it. No hormones, no condoms, no risk of making the hard decisions some I know have had to make. For anyone contemplating it, for anyone fighting with their docs, don’t give up if it’s what you really want.

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days).

Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?

Long distance sucked, and her depression turned into suicidal behavior. (Cont).
