Follow the direction: From your surgeon. Usually no heavy physical labor or heavy exercises for a few weeks. Bathe & shower when ok with your surgeon. Best to eat light foods & drink more liquids early after surgery. Watch for signs of infection such as increasing pain, fever, recurrent vomiting, wound redness or drainage. Do not take narcotic pain medications more than prescribed.
