Exercise after a hair transplant?

I had a hair transplant 3 weeks ago, when will it be ok to start going back to the gym and lift heavy weights? Also will being on propecia effect my ability to put on muscle? Will creatine effect transplant results as I heard it can trigger hair loss or is that a myth?

In general you can resume exercise a week or two after surgery but every doctor may have different opinions or instructions.

3 weeks post hair transplant

I tell my patients that they can do anything that they want to do including full sports, workouts, etc, at this point.
