I usually have my patients wait 3-4 weeks to do aerobic typs workouts( which can include some forms of yoga) and 6-8 weeks for heavy lifting. You should touch base with your surgeon.

I tell my patients 3 wks untill they do strenuous activity and at least 6 wks until they do something where they might be even slightly bumped on the nose




ask your doctor - his/her technique may require a different recovery period
