I've seen a number of questions related to anal intercourse after prostatectomy. Generally I see folks respond that waiting around six months is a good idea, to allow for healing. This got my attention the other day and I thought I'd post for reactions. I had a CT scan done for unrelated issues, but it included my pelvic region. Noted in the report was that several surgical clips are present where the prostate used to be. I read up on the issue and found that clips are often used to ensure no post operative bleeding. Sounds reasonable to me, though I had never considered I'd have metal clips inside me for the rest of time. No big deal, I guess, but here is where I'm curious and would like feedback. The prostate is located directly next to the rectum, so I assume the metal clips are now located in the same area; very close to the rectum. Is it unreasonable to be concerned that any thrusting activity in the immediate vicinity, as would be the case with anal intercourse, might cause injury by way of puncturing flesh with forceful and repeated impact?
