You are not unreasonable. You need to talk to your boss ASAP. This is your financial security we’re talking about, it’s no joke, and they should take you seriously. Your boss will understand, surgery or not.

If I were you, I would start applying to jobs if you feel like this is not going to work out. I’m a student as well, and a few weeks ago I thought I lost my part-time job (long story), so I spent 30-45 minutes a day or so to write cover letters and send applications out. I didn’t lose my job, but I did end up finding a much better and higher-paying job for the summer than I would have had working full-time at my current job.

@Haruyou:  I agree with PP. I would talk to your boss ASAP. Then start looking for a new job if she can’t accomodate you. At the end of the day, it’s just a job and you have to look out for YOU. That is a hard thing to do though, because if you’re like me, then you don’t like putting anyone else in a hard situation to benefit yourself. But your loans aren’t going to pay themselves, and you don’t want to back yourself in a corner.

@Haruyou:  That sucks that you can’t talk to her sooner, but it happens. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!
