Question from Marguerite: How soon after reconstruction surgery should I wait to have sex? Do I need to heal completely first?
Answers - Kara Nakisbendi If you feel comfortable. There may be specific orders from the doctor. Just listen to your body if things make you uncomfortable. You should be fine. It could actually help the healing and the pain.
