In brief: Safe at one month

While it is probably safe to do anorectal manometry and start biofeedback at a month, there is still a lot of swelling and stiffness around the rectum so the results will likely not be accurate and the biofeedback probably not be effective.
Three months would be a more appropriate interval.
