Turbinate reduction surgery and flying

I have to have this surgery in a few days I am a flight attendant. My dr says I can fly after a few days but from what I am reading else where some people and drs are saying 2-6 weeks? My dr has never done this surgery on a flight attendant and I need for facts about flying afterwards. I dont want to fly somewhere and have to be grounded from flying and stuck there not beng able to get home till I can fly?

Anyone ever have this?

Thank you

for a few days after the surgery my nose was dripping blood like a faucet. the flyers probably wouldnt appreciate someone serving their food who has to jam tissues up his nose every 5 minutes. besides the difficulty speaking with nasally voice, and intense intense discomfort of breathing through your mouth while sleeping.... you'll just be an irritated zombie.

i would really want atleast a full week to myself, after the surgery.
