    I don't know. What did they tell you?

    They told me two weeks for mine. In the grand scheme of things, if you're otherwise strongly compliant, two weeks is a minor interruption.

    I was still uncomfortable with being out for two weeks, mind you...but the description of what could go wrong if it started bleeding before it healed included the phrase, "grapefruit-sized".

    I waited the two weeks.

    I had a particularly poor communicator do mine. No one likes to hear the phrase “oh dear we’ve got a bit of a problem here” halfway through. It turned out he was concerned about the possible cosmetic ramifications of having to use a deep mattress suture……

    I specifically asked my doc about squats and he said whenever you're ready. Procedure was done on Friday and I proceeded with a normal SS workout the following Monday.

    2 weeks but I wasn’t sure if there was any other advanced knowledge you had with clients who didn’t wait and resulted in more problems.

    That degree of shrinkage would worry me as well.
