Don't worry, to prove your point a lady should be by shortly to make a comment on this "Guys Only" post.

Discipline isn't a war to be won, but rather a battle to be fought daily.

I don’t think most of them do it intentionally. I think they post not realizing it is in the guys only room. I posted in the women’s only room once on accident. It was a thread on boobs and bra sizes and I made a comment trying to be funny and then I realized I shouldn’t be in that thread.

From what I’ve see we men don’t tend to add a lot to to the message boards.

I just found this guys only section today while scrolling down the main forums page and seeing girls room. I also posted in a topic about saggy boobs to be funny. Pretty sure it was in the sleeve section but F me if it wasn't now I gotta go search for it, damn.....

Anyway good to see we have a "guys room" where woman "don't" read our embarrassing questions or comments. LOL Welcome gents, hope to read more and many of your comments.

I think a lot of the "women in the men's room" posts are due to the App being crap and not telling you *AT ALL* where you are and where you are posting.

Or they just don't care that this is a Men's only room... Seen that a few times,
But post in the Women's only room and watch them lose their collective minds.

Considering how infrequently men seem to post in the Gals Room and how frequently women show up here to add their two cents, I'd say they just don't care.

Alex, is there a way to add a "sex" or "gender" (touchy these days I understand) option on the Account Settings / Profile and make each of the rooms blocked for the opposite sex? This way men and women can feel just a bit more comfortable with the Sex/Gender specific questions? I mean, there isn't anything stopping anyone from viewing posts or commenting on either forum. Doesn't seem like it would be a hard addition to make from a website/programming point of view.

I've been wondering the same thing.

Good suggestion. We had this back in the day. I will see what we can do to add it back.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.
