Hi Belly

As soon as the wound has healed, and you will know this because you will experience no pain in normal everyday movements. If this is the case, then you can begin to try very gentle exercise, stopping if you do experience pain, but not overdoing it if you don't. Everyone will respond differently so there is no definite time.

GOod luck
