Katie Price has reportedly been warned by doctors that she should not have sex for the next fortnight following a five-hour operation on her feet.
The 42-year-old underwent the surgery today after breaking both feet while on holiday in Turkey and is now facing at least six months of being unable to walk as she recovers.
The immediate two-week period after the operation is said to be vital for the former glamour model's recuperation, during which time she will be required to keep her legs elevated as much as possible - apparently precluding her from having sex with boyfriend Carl Woods, 31.
"Katie's been told she has to lie down and not move for two weeks when she gets home," a source told The Sun.
"She will have to keep her legs elevated to give her the best chance of recovery - and that means no sex or moving around.
"Carl will basically be her full time carer - the only time she's allowed to move is to go to the toilet.
"It's going to be a real test but Katie will be following doctor's orders."
Price is said to be "terrified" that her leg may have to be amputated if her recovery fails to go smoothly.
