How Soon After Op Can You Have Sex?
« on: May 03, 2008, 09:35:06 AM »
I read something somewhere that you shouldnt have sex in the weeks after your op as it raises your heart beat, which results in more blood in your veins, which will in turn lead to more blood in scars causing long term scars

Is this true? I am 4 days post op, and am just wondering when I can have sex (or even do anything) again?

Thanks

I've never heard anything like that.  It sounds a bit urban legendish.

I hope it is. I actually read it from notes given to me by my surgeon before surgery. Wanted to ask the doc about it after surgery, but forgot, and have now left so wont get to speak to him again.

Hopefully it is just a myth...... ;)

what you mean 'and have now left'? it was a tourist doctor?

No, I flew to a different city to where I live to have the surgery done. Flew in last Monday, had consultation, surgery on Tuesday, one night in hospital, then rest of time in hotel, then home yesterday (Saturday)

Am happy so far with results. Will post pics once swelling and bruising has gone down

My surgeon has told me not to do cardio because it increases your blood pressure; which causes more swelling. WHich I guess is comparable with sex

i would say wait till a month after. the papers say ask your doctor when its ok. basically just ask if its ok to do exercise (pretty much same idea as sexual activity). they should say you're fine to do everything normal again. i may have cheated a little though before the dr said but i'm fine.
