Is intercourse 2 years after a total colectomy safe for a homosexual?

This is an awkward question, but I had a total colectomy in June of 2016 due to FAP. I am also a gay male and my boyfriend and I would like to have sex; I want to make sure it is safe for me to participate in anal sex before we do it. Thank you in advance for you assistance!

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* As per my surgical experience, a gay male can take anal intercourse ( protected ) at 2 years period of colectomy.
Feel free to ask further doubts.

Take care.
