I was wondering how long after surgery can I be intimate.

Haha, my partner was wondering the same thing and was too scared to touch me.

I think you'll know when you are up to it. It took me about 2 weeks to recover from the surgery which i think is a long time compared to most. Then you just have to deal with the port pain for a few more weeks. Id say 3 weeks and i was in good condition again.

Everyones different though and i think you'll know when you are feeling up to it.

Seriously, as long as you feel good, give it a shot.

My surgeon wants me back in the gym two days after surgery... but 6 weeks for sexual activity. Everybody is different, just do not over due it... regardless of how you are getting your exercise.

I actually resumed ummm 'bedroom activity' 3 days post op and everything was fine. Hope it isn't TMI, but being on top for the next couple of weeks is definitely a good idea ;-)

As long as your feeling better its ok. I did the day after surgery. I was over night at the hospital, just hadda be careful my surgeon said no birth control for 3 weeks following surgery because of the high blood clot risk. Be sure to use CONDOMS!

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
