In brief: Post Op

I would be very wary of any stranger willing to answer this question.
Post Op instructions come from the surgeon responsible for your care. You were given specific instructions about your post operative healing time and when you can resume normal activities. I would refer you back to those instructions or to the surgeon responsible for your care.
