@Rosalita Eman has it right. What your doctor doesn't know won't hurt him but will help you! Don't let the behind the times medical advise hurt you! Take a week off and see what happens, would being a week behind if your surgeon was right be that big a deal with a year to a year and and half for full recovery be a big difference? You have to be your own advocate. Is there anyplace else in your life that you would let someone else cause you ongoing pain? I doubt it. Stand up for yourself. I don't mean to be harsh but your OS is violating his basic oath, "do no harm".
