masturbation one and one half week after hysterectomy

Postby by grace alone » Sat Mar 22, 2014 6:00 pm

I am one and one half weeks past having my hysterectomy surgery. I am feeling very "hot". I have been able to reach climax via manual stimulation already twice in the past few days. I am pleasuring my husband with manual stimulation. Did anyone else have this experience of wanting to climax this early post-operatively and did it hinder your healing in any way?

They told DW to wait 2 weeks before anything sexual, and it turned out to be more like 10 weeks. She had cancer so it was more involved than most hysterectomies.

But I remember reading some women reporting this on hystersisters.com. Anyway, if the doctor says it's OK, I'd say have at it. If not, I'd hold off if possible.

I guess it shouldn't be too surprising -- you normally want sex more often than every week and a half, right? Even with the stress of the surgery, you may not lose all desire, and that's good! :-)

This "hotness" is very normal post-hysterectomy. Women who have had repairs as well are typically the ones told to be on complete pelvic rest. I was so anxious about whether I would still be able to O that I gave it a few tries around this time, too. It caused aching and soreness afterwards, but I experienced no complications in my recovery.

I had my ovaries removed when I had my hysterectomy. I was post menopausal and there is a history of ovarian cancer in my family.

I had an abdominal hysterectomy a month ago. Thankfully the pathology report came back clean, so I just need to heal from the surgery.

I'm cleared for everything but intercourse - that has to wait 2 more weeks. (I may decide to wait an extra week; the thought of that vaginal cuff tearing scares me to death.) It's only been in the past few days that I would have even considered wanting anything sexual. The first week and a half were really difficult; I was in a lot of pain. Just getting in or out of bed hurt terribly. Sex never even crossed my mind and I can't imagine a time when I felt less sexy, not even 9 months pregnant or after my c-sections (though from what I read on hystersisters, many women experience just the opposite.) The next week and a half was much easier, but I was still very weak, sore, and exhausted. A few days ago I started feeling more like myself, and as long as I rest for a couple hours in the afternoon I can keep the exhaustion at bay.

So, we are going to try some external play tonight. I'm a little nervous, but if nothing else, I'll just help dh climax, and we'll enjoy the closeness. When it comes time for intercourse, I know he'll be gentle and let me take the lead on timing, position, etc... It's still scary. The area around my (large!) incision is numb; from what I remember of previous abdominal surgeries, that's not uncommon, and eventually that feeling went away. I hope I can still O. Time will tell.

I was the same way after both my hysterectomy and the oophorectomy that happened 8-9 months later. We had sex a little too early and a little too much (should have at least had DH pull out) after the hysterectomy and I ended up back in the hospital with an infection.

It was so nice to finally have all the problems that precipitated the hysterectomy dealt with I couldn't help myself.
