Okay so I’ve posted a few threads on here about my surgery but I have one more question to ask. I had surgery 12 weeks ago and was left with an open wound on my tailbone (yes on my buttcrack, and yes it sucks). Anyways I haven’t squatted since the surgery but I have been able to do deadlifts and recently some leg extensions. I have been going to a wound center once a week and they say it is healing well, but slow.
There is still an open wound about 2 cm long by 1.5cm deep. The people who do my wound care (hospital employee) have told me no squatting until well after the wound closes and new tissue is strong. However, I talked to my surgeon today (the one that did the operation) and he said I could start squatting again. Unbelievably I can actually get down into the bottom of the squat without any pain. I want to start squatting again instead of waiting 5 or so more weeks. Should I go with what the surgeon said? I ask because I’m not sure he knows what a real squat looks like.
Oh also this is the second time I have had this surgery, previous time wound was partially sewn shut. I was able to squat with the partially open wond before after surgeons approval, however that one never closed which led to my next surgery. He attributed it not closing to other factors other than me squatting though. Like I said I want to start again really bad, and I know ultimately its my decision. I just wanted some input cause Im having a hard time deciding whether to start again or not. Thanks for any replies I get
