Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
just a minute as I read your question fully
so your surgery is on 19th of Feb?
Yes and pre-operative checks tomorrow
After surgery if you could avoid masturbation for 10 days at least that would be great.
If you could abstain for 10 days that would do.
However even if you masturbate a couple of times during these ten days it should not cause any problems as far as I am concerned.
The risk is minimal to say the least.
OK, how would I overcome the bowel movement problem?
You could take some fiber supplements like metamucil
If that does not help then milk of magnesia or other stool softeners could be used during that period of time.
Ok so you think I should be able to work around this.
I am pretty sure you would be able to work around this.
I should be able to go on short walks from Saturday so this should help.
Does the fact that the fungal infection hasn't quite cleared up have any significance?
I do not think it should cause any problems.
If there is some signs of infection remaining you can take OTC miconazole skin cream to help.
Do you think it generally sensible to have an operation if you not actually ill?
I do not think that you are ill. A skin fungal infection is not something that would cause any issues
Sorry, my question was not clear. I am talking about the inguinal hernia surgery again. As I can do pretty well everything, have no pain but just a bit of a lump, is it sensible for me to take the risk of surgery?
I understand that you are pretty well but a hernia should always be repaired
As complications can happen sometime, anytime.
Its a very safe surgery, you will be fine.
OK I think I am good to go for surgery then. Any last thoughts on how to help myself to have a good recovery?
Just try to relax your mind and not think about surgery too much.
Its not something that should cause you any major problems at all.
No other special advice :)
