Surgery in the morning. Felt fine all day, so like a fool I did my normal Taekwondo session in the evening. Big mistake. Split my stitches. Ouch! After that, I took it easier for a few days.

I rode home from the doc's office after mine.....the numbness hadn't worn off yet.

"Hung" around the home for two days after that with tight underwear on and a gel-pack of blue ice.

Uncomfortableness faded and two weeks later, no problems doing much of anything.

I'd wait a week for 400 + a day. Make sure you get a good doc. Don't lift anything heavy for a few days. Ice and whiskey, keep them separate.

I both perform this surgery and have had it done. Three days of rest on the couch, keep a cold beer on it. Should be able to go to most work after that, wait a week to do any real riding. Some people need less, some people think they need less and swell up like a softball.

Get it done on Friday and make sure you sit on your butt Saturday and Sunday with frozen peas on the swollen area. I went to a wedding the day after, and was down and out for 2 weeks they swelled up and tender so bad I couldn't ride for over a month. I would take it easy for a week and you should be fine.

The above two have it right. Do it on a Friday, ice it and stay your butt on the couch Sat. & Sun. Be ginger for the next week. The only diff you'll notice post procedure is a reduced volume of organic excess.

I think you'll find everyone is different and every Doctor is too.
I had mine done 25 years ago and everything still works as it's designed to. I had it done on a Friday and I felt so good that I picked up and engine block on Saturday. No problem but I ended up with a black and blue spot from my crotch to my knee. I guess I pulled something huh. I would have ridden on Saturday except like I said the engine was out of the bike

I got mine done in Xela, Guatemala. $35 cash!

No stitches, they used superglue. I was told no riding for two weeks. My group was going to head out in five days. CJ came along on his R100GS/PD right when I left the clinic. I got on his bike for a lift home.

No pain, no issues, no complications. That was three years ago. Feeling fine.

I know people who had it done for $2000 in the US and who had complications and swelling. It's a roll of the proverbial dice.

As the doc said everyone is different. I would give it a week before planning any long ride. Don't want to ruin your trip. I took it easy for a week, 39 yrs ago.

You should be good by now!! Lol

Except it's been a couple years and mine hurt today for some reason.
Mostly good to go though. I recommend stretchy athletic underwear and standing in the pegs!

24hrs of Religious packing the boys with frozen peas and vegetables and you will be good to go. That's what I did and way laying tile within 3 days of surgery with no ill effects.. Good luck..

Well, I'm happy to report that I was back on the bike in just two days, and a week later I feel pretty damn great. I'm still a TINY bit sore, but I think it might be due to wearing such tight underwear since the process. It's a VERY VERY minor almost not noticeable dull ache along the sides, but I'm still planning on setting off on a large trip in a week!
