The rule of thumb is at three weeks you will have about 70% of the final strength of your repair.
That is plenty to start aerobic exercises.
At six weeks you will have about 95% of your final strength, so at that point, you can start pushing yourself harder.
External support (abdominal binder, compression shorts) often helps.
Topical poultices may make everything feel better, but they will not help the healing.
I would support you if you decide to write about the benefits of pure tissue repair.
The recurrence rate you quoted is too high.
Regards.
