In brief: Varies

Depends somewhat if it was open or laparoscopic surgery.
Each surgeon will have their own instructions. In my patients i tell them to wait a week after surgery before swimming & to limit the time in the water to less than 30 mminutes at first to watch for any irritation or reaction at the incision. Ask your surgeon for their directions.
