Go ahead if stable: This obviously depends upon a few things. Here are a few. First, are you comfortable? Second, how was it fixed? Third, when was it fixed? Hopefully, it was fixed in a stable fashion and if so, and you are comfortable, then sex should be safe. Just avoid applying any weight to the fixed bone, ie. Don't stand on that leg, until your doctor tells you that it has healed. Good luck!

Why not???: Just be careful not to put pressure on the surgical site. Have fun!
