The first time my husband and I had sex post surgery it ended with me in pure agony, bleeding and projectile vomiting followed by a visit to the out of hours GP- although the actual sex was great it was just after that was the problem. The next couple of times were fine then had a few more occasions where I had pain and bleeding. I should also mention my husband works abroad for long periods of time.
I saw my consultant for my 3 month check up in January and she cauterised some granulation tissue but no one could really say what was causing the pain.
Recently my husband came home, so we had sex which again was great but again I ended up on very severe pain after, unable to open my bladder or bowels although it felt like I needed to and yet again I was bleeding. It took me around 4 days to recover as my whole pelvic area feels so painful after. We tried again and it was fine so it seems a bit hit and miss. Without being crude, we’re not going full force at it and my husband is being very gentle with me.
Does anyone have any experience of this?? It’s driving me nuts and my poor hubby feels so guilty when it happens. I’ve spoken to my CNS and she wants me to see the consultant on Thursday. I know it’s never going to be quite the same as pre-op but really hoping it’s not something that is going to continue!!
