In brief: Typically 6 weeks

But i would consult with your trauma surgeon who may want to perform some serologic testing and possible diagnostic imaging prior to giving consent.

In brief: Depends

There are many factors that come into play when determining when it is appropriate to start a workout and weight lifting program after a liver laceration.
These factors include the severity of the laceration, its location, the involvement of any major blood vessels, the surgery performed, and the strenuousness of the workout you desire to pursue. See your surgeon to address your specific needs.
