Sex after surgery: Sex is a high function of the human brain. When the body has been traumatized, like with surgery, the body preserves energy for healing. Your libido will return soon enough.
Dr. Kevin Nail
Dentistry 11 years experience
Oral surgery: Unless you just recently had the surgery and the anesthesia is still hanging around, you shouldn't have a problem with arousal. Or maybe your are taking some post operative meds that have this as a side effect. Really non of these I can think of, but possible. If your are many days after your surgery I would consult your physician for your problem. Oral surgery causing your problem is not likely

Normal: Normal for a shot time after surgery. Should return to normal soon.

Depends: There are different resorb-able sutures types, with different dissolving time frames. These time frames are also an average and depend upon several factors - including a patient's enzymatic activity. Additionally, your diet and oral "activity" could also cause the premature loss of sutures. Within a few days of surgery, then no it is not normal. Give your oral and maxillofacial surgeon a call.
