Recommended Posts

I have kinda a embarrassing question .If you’re over 60 and you’ve had gastric bypass surgery do you get the you know what going again or not because you’re old anyway? Or maybe I should ask a doctor?

I'm not a guy, or over 60 but I'm gonna reply anyway :)

I think the answer lies in the origin of the dysfunction.  If is related to obesity itself, then absolutely your sex life will improve incredibly.  There are several discussion threads on that topic if you search.  If you have had out of control diabetes for many years and the dysfunction is due to vascular damage that isn't reversible there may be some improvement (ie: Viagra will work better) but the damage that has been done will not be magically undone.  If it's related to a prostate issue, bypass and losing weight likely will not change the outcome. 

Obesity-related erectile dysfunction is most often related to hormonal imbalance; specifically not enough testosterone.  The more severely obese, the lower the testosterone level.  That will quickly reverse ED if that is the cause.  Hypertension is another frequent cause of ED, which generally doesn't cause permanent damage, so as weight is lost, blood pressure lowers, blood flow improves and function improves.  All good news :)

Hopefully you'll hear from some guys with some personal experience lol.  I think most of us would agree that sex in general improves greatly because we feel better about ourselves and have more energy.  Yay!!
