post op sex?

I am a week in today and still feeling a sharp pain in tummy. I had a TVH(kept overies) and I am worried that an orgasm will irritate my tummy more. I know it sounds crazy but when my pain meds are working I feel like some...stimulation. It has been so long. I was bleeding for weeks pre-op and now its stopped.
Anyone have any suggestions. I know we cant have intercorse but what about the other?
I would much appreciate any suggestions.Thanks so much.

Just my ... If you are feeling pain so sharp you need to medicate to relieve it, I would think it's too soon to think about any sort of stimulation... the contraction of your abdominal muscles that could occur would just aggravate the pain.

The "urges" at this stage are normal (and very frustrating! ) because of hormonal fluctuations from the surgery. I wouldn't give into them, even with "outercourse", until you've checked with your DR. Don't be afraid to ask him/her, they've heard it all! It's a normal question to be asking.

Best wishes for a smooth recovery.

post op sex?

hello: This is Maryanne and Iam one week post op, of today. Kept the oveires and the rest went to la la land for good. But no bleeding and just wondering about the fore play with the other half, poor guy. But he has been really good about the whole thing, and helps with the kids and house work. Feeling quilty but enjoying it too. What a way to get a real break from being a stay at home mom.

Could anyone tell us when it is safe to foreplay,. Thanks.

(((Maryanne))), your DR is the one who is best able to tell you whether it's OK for you to engage in "outercourse" yet. The DR knows the particulars of your surgery and how you're doing in your recovery. Do give him/her a call and ask, and let us know what you find out, OK?
