Usually after two weeks, the incision is well healed and the sutures are no longer necessary. This is why exercise is okay after two weeks. It should be fine to go back to work now that you are almost 3 weeks into recovery.
However, if you feel more comfortable waiting a few more weeks before going back to hard labor work, that is totally normal. It is really a personal preference after the first few weeks.
