I am scheduled to have a Hydrocelectomy undertaken next Monday.

I am wondering how long after surgery is it usually safe to have sexual intercourse?

    Everyone's recovery time is different. But I would say when your doctor says you can resume "regular activities" is when you can have sex. You definitely wanna wait until you're fully recovered. I had my surgery last July, and had sex last month when I was told I could resume sexual activities..

      Thanks for your reply.

      I am going away on a holiday with my girlfriend in 5 weeks so I am wondering if I should put the surgery off till after this.

      Is your hydrocele too big that it would interfere and be uncomfortable?  Mine was huge and I wasn't about to bang that thing against anything. frown

      Hmmm...that's a tough choice. But depending on how long you've had it, I guess another 5 weeks couldn't hurt. Me personally, I would get it done and reschedule the vaca. Two avacados in your pants is enough, but tryna have sex with them?

      I am just off the phone with the hospital and they said that I should be able to resume normal activities including sex after one week. I think I will just go ahead and get it done to get it out of the way (no pun intended!).

      Normal activities after one week? That's kind of a stretch because it takes longer than that for your stitches to dissolve. And you definitely don't want to have sex if you still have stitches in an area that involves activity. But good luck and come back to let us know how you're recovering.
