How should you wait to have sex after colon surgery

Resolved Question:

How long should you wait to have sex after colon surgery

It is likely going to be at least 3 to 6 weeks.

But this depends on many factors
How extensive was the surgery?
What complications were there?
Did the repair go well.
What does the surgeon say..the surgeon who did the surgery?

Most likely it is not time yet.
It has only been just over 7 days.

Since there is some time before he "should " have sexual relations, he should call the surgeon today...clarify this and any other questions.
;good luck
