SIX WEEKS? Your doctor is a sadist. LOL, interesting to hear the different answers from different doctors to the same questions...

I have plenty of drive, but have been mostly impotent (too flacid for intercourse) due to the 15 pills I take every day for Diabetes and High Blood Pressure.

After my surgery and I loose 100 pounds AND stop taking most of the medication, might my erections become sufficient for sex?

I am 62.

My wife is all for it (the surgery AND a new, harder me. :-)

I can't tell you what your results will be. But, a gentleman friend of the family was in a similar situation and he and his wife were very pleased with the way things went after he has his sleeve surgery. I'm sure your doctor can give you realistic expectations based on you medical history.

Doctor said when I felt up to it. (That would've been day 10 ;) ) Hubby said my libido is at an all time high. Little does he know it will get a lot higher. LOL.....

He said can I start exercising at 4 weeks so that makes no sense.

He included oral in the 6 weeks to..Lol

Hmmm... that sounds... bizarre. Maybe he's not getting any so he doesn't want anyone else to? LOL

That's one doctor's directive I'd probably just... well... cheat ;)

Hey! It burns calories!

My drive before surgery was fine....the actual act wore me out and it wasn't that involved! LOL I waited 2-3 weeks after surgery, I just didn't feel like it, but since then, we've had a LOT of fun! My old lingerie is fitting again and all the estrogen dumping (it's stored in fat) has put my drive in over-drive!! Watch out DH! LOL! Have I mentioned that I love my sleeve??!!

I have basically zero sex drive, but I am not sure if this began shortly before the surgery or only right after. But it was definitely right around my surgery time that I started having these problems.

ROFLMAO! hahahahahahhaa!

You're such a nut! and don't think it escaped me that you're also wanting someone to ply her with alcohol for you as well. I hope that's a chocolate martini!

ohman...I giggle-snorted just as I was taking a sip of Gatorade. If I have red boogies later I'm calling your wife and telling her the dr said NONE for you this week! LOL

Did he clarify if that was giving or receiving? B)

I think I waited like 2 weeks and I didn't mind it...keep in mind I've been married 20-some years so it was no big deal for me. The hubby on the other hand....was a big deal for him lol

My "drive" hasn't increased so much BUT I'm on a lot of meds that hamper it so that's no surprise. I know when we do have sex now I feel more confident in myself and so it's better than it has been in years.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
