Recommended Posts

Has any male experienced loss of sexual appetite or has had erectile dysfunction after having the gastric bypass?

I would think it's gets better after surgery cuz you start to slim down so more energy.

Just a note for you. My husband has recently lost a good 20lbs and gone from a 38/40 to a 34/36. Not only has his 'appetite' increased so has the size of something. So I don't personally think you're going to have to worry about that. :)

And sorry we're not men answering your question.

Well I created this thread because there was about a week or so a few weeks out from surgery that I was a bit limp. I didnt have any desire for any action either. I asked my surgeon if that was normal and he said that it happens with the anesthesia sometimes and that it takes a bit for it to get out of your system completely. Thankfully I am good now and actually even better then in my teen years. :)

i think i was ready to go 3 days post op. so far i've lost close to 25 lbs and i can tell that its "longer". My wife confirmed. ha!

Im about 85 pounds down and it is for sure more visible and noticeable too that it's bigger. To be honest I was afraid that I would lose girth since every where else in my body is getting thinned out. But actually I think it's better. Maybe it's finally getting the right amount of blood circulation. Lol

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
