I'm 2 weeks shy of my 3-month post-op mark. I had an L5-S1 PLIF in July. I've been doing a lot better although I am a little bit sore still.
I'll just cut to the chase – my girlfriend and I haven't had any sexual contact since before surgery. Not only have we both been really busy but it's difficult to get into the mood when I'm sore. My surgeon said that we could have sex as soon as 2 weeks post-op so long as it's passive on my part.
We want to try having sex some time soon (tomorrow night, ha) and I guess I just wanted to know what other people have done in regards to sex. I don't need in-depth details but have you any of you found sex difficult? Painful? Not worth trying? When did your sex life return to normal?
Thanks for the help!
