When can I swim in the ocean?

About 8 weeks after your surgery, you should be okay to go in the ocean, but don’t overdo it. You should not strain yourself while swimming, as this can compromise your recovery. However, this is only if your surgeon says it’s okay and your recovery has been going well. Please ask your surgeon for their advice. If you have any open wound or any skin breakdown I would consult your surgeon prior to undertaking any form of exercise or recreational activity.
