User :   masturbation after inguinal hernia surgery is okay and does it matter? if the feeling is normal around the ejaculation and discharge? how many days required if any, for the safty concen if any? is it as safe as let us say when to use the bathroom in the morning or urinating if it gives the same comfort? the swelling around the wound after the sugery is yet to level out but no other symptoms that are noticible at all!!
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Dr AAAAAAA here
Doctor :   let me read what you have typed.
Doctor :   when was the surgery done? how many days/weeks back?
User :   1week
Doctor :   abstain from vigorous masturbation or intercourse for about 4 weeks, let the healing be complete to avoid recurence
Doctor :   using toilet for bowel movements and urination is fine as long as the stools are soft and not hard

User :   well it has been already perormed and enjoyable but not regorous . i will abstain however!
Doctor :   do not withold urine for long time as it might increase abdominal pressure with resultant pressure on the wound site
User :   how about the swelling around thew wound? when it will level out?
Doctor :   abstain from vigorous masturbation, gentle ones that do not result in any discomfort or pain or ooze from wound site can be considered fine
User :   i urinate very frequently lately!
Doctor :   the swelling will take about 1 week to 15days to go down
Doctor :   is there burning sensation or discomfort associated with urination?
User :   it is noraml then to see a fatty buldge around the left sid around the wound!
User :   non wht so ever every thing is noraml
Doctor :   is the 'bulge' soft, hard or firm? some amount is possible due to tissue edema which comes down with time
Doctor :   does this 'bulge move or become more when you cough or when abdominal pressure rises?
User :   some kind of hard but not much
Doctor :   ok.

Doctor :   ok.
User :   no, but i still feel a litlle sensation of it
Doctor :   ok, it should subside down in sometime
Doctor :   if the bulge seems to increase then it is a matter of concern
Doctor :   keep watch on it
User :   thank you. i have not wet it yet but showering around it. Ilike to saoke in worm water in the tub. is this okayu yet?
Doctor :   no, it is not yet okay to wet the area
Doctor :   wait for another 3-4 days or until after your repaet examination
Doctor :   *repeat
Doctor :   such that it is clear if wound in healing wel
Doctor :   as if the water goes in it can introduce infection
User :   Okay! I will keep watch the swelling but it is not very huge but not as same size of the right side of my groin
