I would wait a bit and see if new leaf sprouts start to come forth, then the plants will kind of show you where to prune them back. Doing so too early actually double shocks the plants creating shock that can kill them. I would water them with some water that has a product called Super Thrive in it the next 3 to 4 times they need watering. The super thrive helps plants deal with many shocks and stresses, I keep some on hand to use when the need arises.
