I would say 4 weeks is good, I went back at 3 1/2 weeks for half days for a week and then extended my days, I did get a little tired by the end so I kind of built back up to it. I maybe could have gone back sooner but I had a small complication that caused me to have the catheter put back in and I had it for 2 1/2 weeks. I really didn't have much problems sitting and never used anything to sit on, I think getting up and moving around every once in a while is a good thing. Best of luck to you on your journey and we will be waiting for you on the other side, the time goes by quickly.
