when is it ok to "fool around" while waiting for sex clearance?

Oct 18th had uterus and cervix removed laproscopicly. Was wondering if it would be ok to have Hubby Ya know....fool around....or if that needs to wait. I know that penetration is big no no but what about the "outside"? Scared an orgasm would hurt.

I would be careful, sometimes one thing leads to the next. My hubby and I did the same thing and I have now been extened another 6 weeks if recovery. My "cuff" stitching seperated and I am now at risk of my small intestine coming through. I am not trying to scare you, I just want you to be very careful. If I had it to.do again, I would have very graciously been ok with the original 6 weeks. There are other Thu.ha you can do besides getting to close to your "goods". Hope this helps.

Many doctors require "complete pelvic rest" until clearance but, if yours didn't give specific orders, then you need to call and ask what is and is not allowed. You risk problems or possible infection by engaging in any sort of sex too soon. Only your doctor knows if your recovery has progressed far enough for any type of sexual activity to be safe ~ that's not something anyone here can say, I'm afraid.

If you've not done so already, it will help you to check out the following HS links which explain in more detail:

Sending all good wishes for your recovery!

Re: when is it ok to "fool around" while waiting for sex clearance?

Thanks for the great replies. There was no way intercourse was going to happen but did try outercourse last night before others replied. After about a minute I had him stop because I had some pain in the vaginal cuff even though wasn't even a little bit close. No damage but defiantly going to wait longer. My Dr said 8 weeks for intercourse. That's so long but don't want any more procedures! Thanks for the articles you forwarded to me pooodle
