Surgical technique: It is unlikely to cause harm but your surgeon will know exactly what was done and what techniques were used. It is likely they will want you to refrain at least for a brief period of time. Since we do not know exactly what was done surgically it is best we do not give a recommendation only 3 days after. I am glad your surgical recovery is going so well though.
