Thank you for your question.It is important to follow the post-operative protocols of your surgeon but you most definitely do not want to sit or lay on your back for at least the first three weeks. This is what I recommend for my patients; during the first week, only sitting to use the toilet is recommended and you much sleep on your stomach. The second week you may sit up to 5 minutes two times per day, the third week you may sit up to 9 minutes five times a day only and after the third week sitting is fine as long as you are comfortable. I also recommend that your garments be worn at all times for 4 weeks from the day of surgery. I hope this helps.
Best of luck!
