What does your doctor say?  Have you discussed this with her/him?  If the answer is yes, make sure the doctor tells you how much "part time work" to try, if any.  If the doctor advises against not working, you have your answer.

Earnings may affect your benefits if you are receiving SSI benefits.  In addition, if the wages for your part time work rise to a certain level, SSA will count the month as a trial work period month.  

You must report any work activity once you begin to your local social securityoffice.  Document your reporting and do it in writing if possible.

Social Security
Social Security is a federal government program, primarily funded through payroll taxes, that provides an array of benefits to retired workers, the survivors of workers, the disabled and low-income families. Social Security attorneys typically work with one of two groups of clients. Many Social Security lawyers focus their practices on working with those whose applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) have been denied. These attorneys assist clients at eligibility hearings and throughout the appeals process. Other Social Security law firms represent those who have been accused of Social Security fraud and those who are victims of Social Security fraud.
