There is no restriction of food as such - drink more water and keep yourself hydrated.

You can resume your sexual activities.

You can go back to work as soon as possible.

There would be no problem going back to DJ ing.

The healing time is 4 - 6 weeks after surgery.

You can do all the work you were doing before the surgery; there needs no restriction of work.

Some discomfort may be experienced , but should come down with time.
