so. at my work there are like 7 of us on shift, 5pm to 5am. we are required to have 2 people there for every shift minimum. with the holidays coming around people are taking their time off. it looks like so far that its just going to be 2 of us "scheduled" to work thanksgiving. i am not sure my boss is taking me seriously as to why she would do that. i have told her that i have a medical issue in the form of gall stones. i am trying to get in with a surgeon to schedule and perform the surgery, but unfortunately this process is not moving very fast. PCP scheduled with GI specialist, GI specialist refers me to surgeon with ordered stuff. gall bladder removal and 3 biopsies. the last time i was checked for my gall stones, she said i was at like 1/3 of my gall bladder was stones. she is seriously shocked at how i have not gone full on symptomatic. currently my liver numbers are pretty far off. after my doctor got my last round of ultra sounds on my gall bladder she gave me some orders. 1) no large meals. it could set it off. 2) no alcohol, it could set it off, and my liver numbers are so bad it could induce alcohol poisoning 3) be very careful moving around like when waking up. it could set it off 4) be careful of applying too much "internal compression" with deep breathing or when taking a shit. it could set it off. she is convinced that i am having pains, and she may be right, but im not attributing it to the gall stones which would be the cause. if i ever go full on symptomatic with pain, i have to go to an emergency room for immediate surgery, and if that happens 2-8 weeks recovery. and there is no guarantee that i could drive myself to the hospital which would mean ambulance. but she also told me to not be too worried about it, as if it happens, it happens. large meal could set it off, drinking alcohol could set it off or worse, and eating even something like a bite size snickers bar could set it off, so there isnt any point in worrying about it. but at any time, i could go full on symptomatic with pain, and im out of the running. i am not sure her scheduling just 2 of us for thanksgiving is that smart of an idea. i have already turned down 3 offers from people to join them for thanksgiving because i know that if i am sat in front of a lot of food, i would over-eat. and thats not a good thing. do you agree with my boss that this is a reasonable idea, or that this could be disaster for her.
