My stupid question ?

Hi ,
Now that I'm more confident about going forward with my L5-S1 laminectomy with a anterior /posterior fusion. This acceptence happen after I had resided myself to the fact that not doing it, is worst then doing it. My date with the surgeon is next wed.

My wife and I were talking about "doing it" post -op . I told her I had no idea how long it would take before I was able to "do it again".I said maybe months, she said "wow".

So I decided to ask you. How long before you can "do it again" ?

Richard

I don't know about how long you would have to wait, but my advice would be to let her be on top and do all the work.

Re: My stupid question ?

[COLOR="Navy"]LOL.

We can talk about almost anything! My surgeon said 3-4 months, but to be careful. Now I had a 3 level fusion. It was 4 months and I easily could have waited (for myself) another 3 years? OK so that's an exaggeration-some-. You will need to be very careful. I would also be careful with having your wife on top also. She would need to be careful about sitting down on top of you and doing some damage.

I know it's tough for you guys.... just teasing you. The watch word is to be CAREFUL. for two reasons. 1-you don't want to do any damage to what the surgeon has done. 2-you don't want to have to go in and tell him why you have this problem!

I'm sure pepper will find the thread for you. But I think it was started by a gal...and it's different for you guys. Maybe Shawley will weigh in..[/COLOR]

Re: My stupid question ?

Okay I found the thread and added a note to it so it should show up towards the top of this page. It is entitled "Sex after back surgery".

DanSSwing,
Ouch I don't know about my wife being on top. That could be dangerous.

Re: My stupid question ?

Re: My stupid question ?

Y'all r too funny... but seriuosly, my last herniation occured 4 days after "doin it" & I think my wife was actually a lil proud that she was able to put me out of commission!

To RM: I laffed out loud on the "that could be dangerous" comment!

Take care... Dave!

Re: My stupid question ?

I tried after 4 months. It was not easy. My hubby keeps giving me the look again. I'm in so much pain it is the last thing I want to do.
