28 days is what I have always heard for a near-100% cure. I had the
same quandary with my tower base and finally decided to wait the extra
three weeks.

That was six years ago and the three weeks is long forgotten, but if I
had waited only one week and there had been any problems whatsoever
develop, I would have kicked myself into the next county.

Patience is your friend. You'll sleep better.
