Had cervical fusions, on pain management. Can I fly?

I am slated to fly 1 1/2 years after 2 cervical fusions. I can not sit on an airline seat for extended periods and when I reach my destination I would have to perform physical labor for which I cannot perform. I am currently on pain management as well. How do or what do I need to do to let my employer know that tis would not be a good idea?

We understand your concerns

You are not supposed to be over anxious about your job. You already know or feel that you cannot perform physical labour. Also it is difficult for you to fly a tleast for two years. Then why can't you leave the job? and search for a fresh job which is suitable for you? consult a psychologist or vocational counselor and they can help you. Get well soon.
