Sex after the Band



Recommended Posts

I know this is a personal question, but I don't feel comfortable asking my doctor. How long after surgery should you wait to resume normal sexual relations? Is there anything to consider - do you need to be careful, etc? What about the oral sex - is that still okay even though the throat may be a little tender from PBing? Any input would be great - Thanks!

The band are usually an un-washed bunch of longhaired hippes types who carry diseases and infections with them. I would not sleep with anyone who slept with the band for fearing of catching whatever you got from them.

Oh....wait....you mean lapband.

I didn't wait (i'm a guy), and I had no problems. The same of course goes for oral, but again a. I'm a guy, b. I never PB'd.

I think they are purely based on personal comfort. I don't think it's healthy to strain those stitches, but I'm sure if you are careful you will be fine.

I had the surgery on the 6th, I think the first attempt to convince my wife to have sex was about an hour after I woke up. The catheter ruined that conversation. I think she finally gave in on the 7th.

There's a catheter involved - for both men and women? yikes!!! how much does it hurt? Do they put it in after you are asleep?

I don't know about the ladies, but when I was a asleep the sneaks put one in. However I was lucky enough to be wide awake when they removed it.

I did not have a catheter (or if I did it was in and out while I was knocked out) but I really don't think I had one. You can have sex as soon as you want, but I wouldn't be trying any crazy positions until you're healed enough. Of course, after you start losing weight, you will not be able to keep your man off of you!!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
