    ejaculation pain after surgery

    I respectfully disagree with the 6-weeks. There is no evidence to support inactivity, including sex, until 6 weeks postop for inguinal hernia repairs. Especially primary non recurrent ones and laparoscopic.

    I don’t restrict my patients on any activity. This is also supported practice by the European Hernia Society consensus statement.

    Pain with ejaculation and orgasm may be related to mesh:vas deferens interface. It should resolve with time. If it doesn’t, see a specialist. Rarely, the mesh may need to be lifts off the spermatic cord.

    Otherwise there is no correlation.
