Before I explain the situation, I'm sure this is probably just a simple talk to my sup to get everything situated, but I'd like the opinion of the BC. Alright, well I have an ear surgery planned and scheduled for the 18th of August (A Thursday). Its a rather simple out-patient 30 minute procedure, and won't need TOO much time off. That much being said, I'll have to of course take off that day and the next, and on my return on that Monday the doctor said I need to be put on light work for the next 10 days. I'm fine by this, and my doctor said he will of course have the documents and notes I need to take the time off. My question is, is a talk with my sup really all I need? I don't have any sick or vacation days to use, but I'm sure it's not something I would have to use them for to begin with with the note I'd be able to bring in.
