In this blog, we will highlight a few questions that patients look for answers to when they return home after a spinal surgery. But do not forget that you should have been given a memo where the topic of interest may be covered, and the best adviser is the attending physician.
When can you have sex? Sex after spinal surgery is usually allowed between 2-6 weeks after it. But! Only if the rehabilitation process proceeds according to the norm and without complications. The exact time frame is unrealistic, because there are many diagnoses and surgical tactics. If after a simple removal of a hernia, the period of abstaining from sex is approximately 2 weeks. At the moment of intimacy, posture should not cause overvoltage of the problem area. It is better not to neglect the fixing corset until the end of the rehabilitation period.
