Allow Intercourse Post Navel / Umbilical Surgery?
I want to ask. 3 days ago I just had a navel surgery. Aged 31. What I want to ask is if 3 days after surgery I can have sex
Do you mean hernia surgery? Hernia surgery can be done with 2 techniques namely with laparoscopy and with open surgery. Laparoscopic hernia surgery is performed with a small incision so that the recovery period tends to be faster. While open surgery requires a longer recovery period of around 2-6 weeks. Generally patients can begin to move little by little 1-2 days after surgery and then light activity starting 1-2 weeks postoperatively.
For intimate relationships, this depends on the patient's condition. An intimate relationship can begin when the wound is completely dry and closed and no more complaints are felt. The process of wound healing can be different for each patient depending on the type of surgery, the presence or absence of infection, complications, post-operative care, and the patient's general health condition.
If your wound is not yet dry, you should first have intimate contact postponed because it is feared that the pressure on the abdomen will prolong the recovery process. I suggest that you control again with the surgeon according to the schedule provided and you can discuss with the doctor who treats you directly about the condition of the surgical wound and the time it is allowed to have sex.
To help the recovery process, you should consume healthy and nutritious food, get enough rest, take the medicine given by the doctor if there is, start moving exercises gradually, avoid heavy activity first, try not to push, and avoid lifting heavy objects.
Hope it helps you,
