Kiss your sweetie!
think sexy thoughts.....

think about how you felt before surgery when your drive was there.... and see if you feel the same!

I know even just a few days after being home I could tell there was nothing wrong with my "drive" --- but of course we couldn't go for a spin around the block for several weeks!

best wishes that it *is* there for you!

Good question!
pretend your dating again and you can't go all the way yet! Keep it above the belly button But be warned, you could drive your poor DH crazy! Hopefully it will be for you like it was for me, within minutes of passionate kisses and being held in his arms I almost forgot I had the surgery! Had to send him to the shower while I tore up a pint of Ben & Jerrys! Good Luck! 's

You'll be able to tell once your held and DH teases you a bit believe me! I could tell a few days after I wanted it but knew it was a "no no". I see Tuesday but think he will make me wait longer than 6 weeks. Had LAVH but other repairs and 1 ovary removed. Love, ((((STITCHER))))
