Recovery time and subsequent events will depend on the reasons why vitrectomy surgery was done. The eye doctor who did the surgery will be in a better position to guide you properly. Straining efforts like weight training shall be avoided at least for one more month. That kind of heavy exercise anyway requires very good control of diabetes and approval from the treating physician as well.
