    a week or thereabouts. although with my last one i went 5 days before i went swimming.

    i guess it depends on each person and their healing time, but a week is generally ok :)

    I was told at least two weeks before submerging it even in a bath, but he liked to say a month to be safe. I didn't ask about chemically treated water though, I'd leave it as long as possible, but I once had a bad experience with hair dye and a pool :p
