Brutus was full grown when he was neutered. He was sore for the first day or two, & then he was back to normal. We let him walk up the 4 stairs to get into the house, but we didn't let him climb flights of stairs for the first week. We kept him quiet for a week, & then he went back to normal activity.
Just a heads up. There will be swelling from the surgery. The edema will push down into the lowest area near the incision, so don't be surprised if, the next day, he looks like he hasn't been neutered at all. The swelling will resolve, & will eventually look more normal. He may always have an "empty change purse" though.
