intercorse before surgery?

okay I have probably a weird question...my doc didn't say anything to me about bowl prep or intercorse the night before surgery so I'm gonna assume that I can have intercorse the night before surgery...did any other ladies have fun with their husbands before surgery?

Re: intercorse before surgery?

All mine told me was shower the night before. Bowel prep was my choice; she didn't require it for surgery but I have issues with morphine and constipation.
I can tell you, the fibroid I have is bearing down on what is apparently a highly sensitive area; I found myself jumping my husband more in the past two weeks than I have in two years! He's been gracious enough to accommodate me, lol! Since I know it'll be off-limits for 6 weeks, heck yeah I plan on having a little fun tonight. Pretty sure I won't be in the mood after surgery tomorrow, lol!

Re: intercorse before surgery?

I was told to do a bowel prep before my surgery, but knew other women who did not do one. My understanding is that it is surgeon and surgery-type dependent. Some surgeons want the patient to do them, others don't.

I did not have any intercourse restrictions.

Most pre-op instructions are very specific. Follow them to the letter. But, if you have questions or concerns, call your doc. They don't mind you asking - I had numerous questions myself. For example, mine mentioned avoiding fish oil. I called and told them I took flax seeds, and they said - oh avoid that too! The docs would rather have you prepare for this correctly.

Good luck, and we will be waiting for you on the other side.

Oh yeah! We had a wonderful time the whole weekend before surgery. Especially since we knew it would be a six week wait after.
We had our last fun the day before surgery before the bowel prep. Once that started bleh

Re: intercorse before surgery?

Let's see. The weekend before and the week of surgery, my allergies acted up so bad I was a snoty mess. For some reason my husband wasn't interested! Lol!

I did have to do the bowel prep. My surgeon said it makes the intestines smaller so they are out of the way. But, as everyone above said, it just depends on the surgeon.

Re: intercorse before surgery?

I did have to do an enema for bowel prep, and feeling pretty miserable the night before my surgery. I was not interested in sex at all. In fact, I don't think we had sex for several weeks before my surgery and a full 6 weeks after. However, we have made up for lost time now !

If you were not told at pre-op I would assume it is okay.

Re: intercorse before surgery?

I'm doing my bowel prep today for my surgery tomorrow. My doctor also told me to use a medicated douche tomorrow before arriving at the hospital. I have never purchased or used one before, so this will be the first and last time. My husband and I are only intimate around 4 times per calendar year due to excruciating pain and blood from my stage III endometriosis. If your doctor didn't prohibit it, enjoy yourselves.
