Funny how our minds work isn't it...this was one of my 1st questions with my doc...lol...he told me it was up to how I was feeling...now keep in mind I had my JP drain for a week post op...yuck....and I was sore for a few weeks...so I would say it certainly depends on you....and how your feeling.... I was almost 4 weeks post op before having it....but can I tell ya I'm 4 months post op and it is AMAZING!!! Whooo hoooo...love it love it love it....lol

 All depends on you... I'd have been comfortable with it about 4 days out or so, but waited a week to have the drain hanging off the front of me removed first. :D

 Depends totally on how you feel.

For me it was about 2 weeks out.  Could have done it a week earlier but DH thought my sores looked icky and sore, they were icky but not sore....it was probably a good thing I waited....

But I felt pretty normal, well a little better at 2 weeks I had lost 18lbs, and my hubby had been dieting and he'd lost 15lbs! 

Now at 6 weeks, I'm down 30lbs, he's down 25lbs....all is good!!!!

My surgeon said when you felt up to it.  I didn't have a drain at all, and I think we waited til 2 weeks postop.

I didn't come home with a drain, but I waited at least a week or so.  I don't think it would have been comfortable prior to that.

I couldn't even think of sex when I was at the hospital. And I couldn't even think of sex for almost 3 weeks out.

I held off for 6 days,,,, had surgery on monday, and was feeling great by saturday, so we went for it! My only advice would be to take it easy, my stomach muscles were really sore the next day!
