answer
After bypass surgery (coronary artery bypass graft, often called CABG), it is important to wait to resume physical activity (including sexual activity) until your breastbone is completely healed, which usually takes 6 to 8 weeks. Then it is best to check with your doctor about when to resume sexual activity. Once you are cleared to resume sex, consider sexual positions that do not put pressure on the sternum.
