Mastrubataion without traumatizing the site of surgery will not do any harm. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!

missing info: You have not described/defined what you mean by masturbation. I would encourage you to avoid any activity that involves the surgical site for at least 2 months.
