Mensagem: 

    Hi Deiviss, I saw the two forms "after being away" and "after having been away" in the Web.      It seemed that they used the former to talk about one week span, and the latter to talk about a more extended time (two weeks onwards; even eight, twenty years...)

     Anyway, I will stuck to the "after being away" form, looks more natural to the short time in question.   Let´s wait further comments on this topic, then.

     Thanks for noticing.
