Hello Beryl


Please know that I am not a medical professional and I cannot give you any medical advice.


The best thing you can do is to call the doctor or the hospital where you had this procedure done to ask about after-care procedures. 


Here is some general information about what you can expect after your procedure.


It is reported that a swollen stomach is a normal side effect to tubal ligation.  In the information given above they say that intercourse can resume in 4-7 days.  However, you are saying that this was an emergency operation and so the recovery time may be different for you.


Please call your doctor to ask these questions.  This is the only safe way to know for sure. 


Thank you for your question.
