You need to be very careful right after surgery, so your ear stays safe. It is OK to play quietly, but you are not allowed to run around, jump, or play hard for a couple weeks. Dr. Lewin will ask your parents to let you watch lots of TV and play video games (lots of reading and drawing too) since you won’t be able to run around. After 3 weeks, you can do most things like before, but just not play PE or sports. You can go back to all activities after 6 weeks.
