When to transition compression garments? (Photo)

Right now I'm 2 weeks post op and healing quite nicely although I'm still a bit stiff and swollen. I'm wearing the compression garment and board (no foams). How much longer until I can wear a regular waist trainer (Ann cherry or a corset) because going to the bathroom in the garments is really annoying?

I usually have my patients alternate garments at 2 weeks.  Spanx makes nice garments that are more comfortable. Ask your surgeon for his recommendations.
