A few days away for my RNY!

Recommended Posts

Hello gentlemen!

Happy to see there is a guy's forum on here, seems all the others are dominated by the "other-half" [emoji23]

I'm scheduled for my RNY this coming Monday 7/12. Excited, nervous and all those other emotions that come with it.. I'll be posting my progress as I go, as I'm sure I'll need some advice from our seasoned WLS

But at the moment, I've been on the liquid diet now for about a week and a 1/2 and have noticed issues getting an erection the last couple of days. Anyone else experiance this while on liquids only? If so did it all clear up post op? It's pretty troubling to say the least.

Thanks a lot!

No issues other than the norm with the liquid diet. I do have issues from time to time but I think it's due to the meds I'm on. Killed my libido and when I was drinking it didn't last long when it did work.

I'm 2 days post op, had my VSG on the 12th this past thursday. (Think you typed your numbers wrong). I think do to the trauma of the surgery or the pain pills or combo of everything, Junior has no interest in coming out to play at all. BUT from all I read and heard from other WLS male patients that all goes away and it's like we are teenagers again. Can't wait for that stage. I know the wife won't be happy.....

Maybe it's just the emotions of what's to come. I wouldn't worry about it to much. Give it time and see how things go. If you have issues down the line bring it up with your PCP. Good luck with it all, especially your surgery and recovery!!!

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
