The Vestibulitis Diary – Part 17: If Only

Day 95 After Surgery

Vestibulitis Diaries part 17 - If Only

We tried sex for the first time after the surgery. Apparently a little under three months was just too soon. It hurt as bad or worse before the surgery.

Admittedly I was slack on the physical therapy and daunted by a big hematoma on the incision line that would flare up and be gone in a matter of hours (being fairly painful in the interim).

Needless to say, I was saddened. It was one of those nights where I curled into a ball beside him and let him “there, there” me until I couldn’t stand being sad anymore.

We went to the store to satisfy other carnal cravings. He asked me what I wanted.

I answered “Pain free Sex”. And thus came the idea for the picture. If only it were that easy.
