Just explain exactly what you said above and ask the GP for some more recovery time. I'm sure it will be absolutely fine. Look after yourself!

Ask and you will probably get one. I don't think it's unreasonable if you explain your reasons and don't feel you could do your job properly. Other option would be to discuss a phased return. flowers hope your results are good news.

You can only have a sicknote if you have been off work for more than 4 days? Other than that YANBU

The Dr will ask how long you need and write a note. I had to ask for one after suffering stress that gave me panic attacks.

Definitely go in and ask for a sick note. Explain you're struggling to sleep and doubt you'll function well enough to do your job. May also be wise to ask about extra pain relief to get on top of it.

I'm surprised the surgeon didn't automatically sign you off for two weeks, tbh.

Your GP will just do it, won't question you, make you feel guilty, or berate you and if they do- report them and see another one.

yanbu - your GP will see this - take it easy on yourself - it's sounds stressful and painful thanks
