I'm with Bob Ross--follow the doctor's instructions. Coincidentally, two friends and I wound up having the procedure within a couple of days of each other, all by the same doctor (we didn't know we'd all scheduled it until a day or two before, when the first one in said, "Oh, @$%#, Tuesday's the day"). I'm a wuss, and I followed the directions exactly. Can't remember, but I think it was two weeks. I had no problems, almost no post-op discomfort, nothing. One of the other guys went on vacation right after his, so he didn't ride, and he had no issues.
The other guy, who happens to be a doctor himself, figured he knew more about his body than any damn urologist and was back riding in a couple of days. He got a lot of swelling, pain, and wound up being off the bike for several weeks.
