I had appendicitis and...

I had appendicitis and I had my appendixed removed 3 days ago thru laparoscopic surgery.. I had an appendectomy .. it’s friday now 3 days later and my wife gave me oral sex and it did not hurt and I’m just wondering if it’s ok to do this.. I’m waiting a while before we have sex but is the oral sex ok??

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I’m not having any pain

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No that’s it

Absolute no problem with your getting oral sex three days after this kind of operation

It can't harm the surgical site or the port wounds in your abdomen

So no need to worry

Please let me know if you need any more information

oral sex is ok after this operation .. I was laying on my back and I was not straining or moving any abdominal muscles while this was happening.. so it’s ok..??? And when would be the appropriate time to have regular sex?? How long

It was fine--no harm done at all

As for regular sex that would be fine after another four days
