Practice "Safe" Sex

There is nothing intrinsically dangerous about having sex after a right-colon resection. However, depending on the surgical technique, we don't want to overly stress the healing abdominal incision(s). Therefore, if you can have sex without any "heavy lifting", any time is fine.
