I had a TT with muscle repair 8 weeks ago and I am still sore and tender. Swelling is still a major problem. Would physical therapy help?
I Am a Police Officer...how Long Before I Can Wear 25 -30 Pound Belt and Vest After TT?

You will be in the vest in a week and chasing bad guys in 2 or 3.
I have done many police officers and am familiar with your question. No worries about wearing the vest in 7- 10 days but it will take 2- 3 weeks for you to be catching bad guys. Good luck officer.
