It depends: It is best to check with your operating surgeon. Activity release is usually managed by your surgeon as only he or she knows the extent of the procedure and whether your recovery is satisfactory. However, most patients who had uneventful laparotomies do heal sufficiently by 4-6 wks to allow for resumption of most physical activities - including sex.
