Hi geordieman and welcome to ehealth: There are many good lubricants...I have used Astroglide, however, each person has there own preferance...If you have doubts, then have her call her OB-GYN....

As far as your relations go, my best advice is to go it slow...Don't put any pressure...Take it easy....With both surgeries being performed, it will take time and patience...Take care...
