Just had abdominal surgery. How long should I wait to sing again?

Last Monday I had my gall bladder removed, laparoscopically. I asked my doctor about singing and he really didn't know how to answer.
What I don't want to do is start too early and give myself a hernia. Full recovery is said to be 4 to 6 weeks for normal work. It's been 8 days and I have lots of work I could be getting done in the studio... But without being able to sing, it's really limiting. I feel like the safe thing is to wait at least 4 weeks before I try.
Anyone went through this? Am I being overly cautious?
