Check with your urologist about
your individual situation, but the usual recommendation is about
a six week wait before any activity that stresses the abdomen.
After surgery, the fat and skin heal rapidly, but the muscles take the strain of intra-abdominal pressure. Healing takes place in two stages (1) A thickened inflexible scar forms with nerve endings. (2) Scar tissue becomes flexible and adapts to movement. Healing must be allowed to occur to prevent weakness in the scar line and potential rupture or herniation of the abdominal contents thru weakened muscle.
Walking is important in the early stage of healing. The operative word: Take it easy....Tim
