I cannot tell you how long it will be to pick up your baby boy as this depends upon the surgeon’s technique and particular requirements for rehab. I would say that in my practice, you could hold him while you were sitting on the couch immediately but could not pick him up for about 5-6 weeks.

Genetics tends to be the culprit. The tensile strength of the collagen is the factor at play.
