Question about anal penetration!

A very good Sunday to everyone!

When is it wise to allow anal penetration after the RP surgery?

I have been receiving some feedback about this and I have in mind for sure not before the 3 months after surgery, but I read some people saying it should be more.

Can I get from any of you some experience on this?

I am on the second month after surgery and my recovery is being good. I am almost continente. Only suffering from ED, but seeing some signs of improvement.

Thank you, Paulo

When i asked my Dr.about this he stated that usually you will be healed fine after the 3 months as a RP is not like the DiVince and has nothing to do with the rectum other than the prostate was removed. but be sure to reopen yourself before penitration and if there is any pain stop and wait longer.

My mistake. I thought RP was only thru the front and was open surgery like i had. but then the same rules should still apply. your body will let you know if it is not ready for anal sex yet. You can also always ask your Dr if it your healed enough. You seem very young according to your picture for Prostate Cancer, I hope they got it all and you have a very healthy and sexual life ahead of you.

I am 49 and the picture was taken 3 years ago 😀 but so PC does not pick age unfortunately.

I feel fine now but afraid to hurt anything.

If the doc says three months I believe him. I waited much longer but that was because I wasn't having any sex at all for a long time afterwards, for reasons of ED and emotional reasons, adjusting to my "new state", etc. When I finally did it was fine, maybe actually a little easier. Just take it easy, if it's with a regular partner I presume he'll already the situation, but if it's with a "stranger" be sure he knows to take it easy until you know what your limits are. And if you're not sure, wait a little longer. Good luck!

I think it's all going to be up to you Paulo! If it hurts... don't do it! Moderation and just alittle at a time. Don't be surprised if you pee alittle at one time or another...golden showers I guess!!!! Lol

The doctor told me 3 months before riding a bicycle, because it takes time for the bladder-urethra reattachment to heal. I can't imagine anal would be any sooner.

All, I wanted to tell you I gained courage and asked my doctor. He told me I could resume that sexual activity.

I did once already and I felt no pain. It was pleasurable as before 😀 I took some advise from here and my partner and I did it gentle. So great! Another step.

Hope it helps you too.

Paulo, thanks for sharing your situation with everyone. it's helpful for me as i am in a similar situation. Pre-surgery i was a Versatile Top but being a bottom was always more satisfying. So the slow ED recovery is less stressful for me at this time. But nice to hear that you recovering well and getting back to normal avtivities. 😉
