After a 50-60 lb loss, things can only get better.

I wasn't told, and didn't ask how long to wait. I didn't think it would be an issue, so I only waited 4 days and surgery didn't affect anything. Actually it did in a way......it is so much better now ;)

My dr. didn't say and I didn't think to ask. I just waited until I felt better (I was in pain the first week) but I have to agree with another poster. It has gotten a lot better. :) (for me anyway)

2 weeks after surgery I hurt myself taking out the garbage so I got scared.. I ended up waiting a month for sexy time to start up again, my tummy just hurt too much and I didn't want to pull anything. It may be TMI, but after 62lbs lost it has gotten better, easier, a little more creative and more frequent.. I actually want it more now LOL.. It feels good to not feel like a total pig fighting under a blanket anymore..
