Usually the recovery period is 6 weeks. From 4 weeks, you can gradually start exercising but listen to your body. Swimming could be started a bit earlier. Remember that everyone reacts differently to surgery and you will have to see how you feel.
Check with your doctor whether he/she wants you shaved.
