    You should wait a few days to a week… you don’t want to risk infection. Once it’s heals a little, you will be fine… just as an added precaution, use peroxide or alcohol on it after swimming just to ensure no infection.

    PS – Sox won again tonight… kicking a$$!!!! :)

  3. BeccaBunny Says:

    They tell you to wait 8-10 weeks but to be honest, you should really wait about 6 months until they’re completely healed :)

  4. Trish Says:

    They take 6-12 months to heal, and that long until you can go swimming in a pool, lake or ocean.

    If you don’t wait you have a huge chance of getting an infection. It would be best to wait until after summer is over if you plan on swimming.
