Masturbation is safe and will not hurt, unless you insert objects into your vagina. Orgasm through clitoral stimulation will not harm the surgical site. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!
