I couldn't sleep last night. I had so much pain in my neck and thru my throat. I am stressed out about the idea of surgery and recovery time. I really want to hear what recovery looks like, especially when it is via neck.
I am self-employed and have to really plan on how I could afford to lose time at work. Please let me know what your experiences have been like. Mainly - how soon could I realistically be back with clients, in person without having obvious physical issues? I'm a real estate agent - sitting in open houses, gaining customer confidence, etc.
I want to be real about my expectations so that I have the best shot of being prepared financially. I want to talk to my broker and review this with her.
Thank you so much for all your feedback! It is really helpful. :)
