Thanks - I'm sorry you are having so much trouble! I can't imagine the stress of starting a new job and having to deal with what you are dealing with. I hope everything works out for you. I know what you (and your wife) mean about being careful. It's hard when you're feeling better to not over do it. Thanks for the advice - my wife is also constantly telling me to be careful, so I'm trying. Good luck with your surgery. I hope that soon you will be in a better job and feeling better!
