Forum Name: Ear Nose and Throat

Question: tonsillectomy

summercp - Fri Jul 30, 2004 11:55 am

I just recently had my tonsils taken out, and everything went fine after surgery-I saw my doctor on day 8 and he said everything was healing fine and that I could return to normal activities. My question is how soon can I give oral sex without it being a problem, or is it even a problem to do it?

It takes anywhere between 2 to 4 weeks till healing is complete. You should visit your doctor then and when he tells you that you have completely healed, then you can resume your normal activities.
