I had the surgery for abdominal wall repair of my bladder with mesh sling on 6/3/08. I was sent home from the hospital within 6 hours following the procedure and have done very well in my recovery with no complications. I resumed my normal activities, including work after a week of rest. I'm wondering when it would be safe to have sex again with my husband? Are there certain things I should be prepared for when we do attempt it, like pain or anxiety associated with sex after this surgery?
I tell my patients 6 weeks for intercourse. Most of them are OK starting at about 4 weeks. It might make sense to have your doctor see you at 3-4 weeks, and if the exam is normal, then you should be good to start intercourse again.
