Yeah dude, keep it on for at least 4 weeks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But just ask you doc. I think though its okay to take 2 breaks each day for like 15 minutes.
If you have gyne, dont expect not be laughed at.

Just like if you walk into a locker room, you're gonna see some hairy asses and dicks.

Unfortunately for me, both have occured in my life way too many times.

Mine recommended 4-6 weeks 24/7 but could start to take it off after 4 weeks and listen to your body.  If it begins to swell then just pop it back on or wear it for sure when u sleep.

Good luck

Depends who your doctor is.

I've been told I only need it for 3 weeks 24/7... but it could be different for each person. You should leave it on for 48 hours after surgery before you remove it and shower.

A month 24/7 ... is a good bet.

Have a shower 3 days after your op and have a peek then.

Keep wearing the vest?
