i had minor nose surgery last wednesday (oct. 19), to correct a deviated septum. they had to put me under general anesthetic.since then, ive had little to no sex drive at all. i otherwise feel fine now, besides the fact that my nose runs funny colors. hell, the day after, i tried for half an hour to ejaculate and then gave up, cause nothing was happening, when usually i get it in under 5 minutes tops. its getting a bit better now, but still..so my question is, first, confirm that it is in fact the surgery that caused this (cause my body has better things to do like healing my nose as opposed to producing hormones or whatever), and second, how long is it gonna take for things to get back to normal? its getting kind of embarassing...Dave
Lost sex drive from minor surgery
I think you hit it on the nose (pardon the pun) when you pondered that your body is more interested in healing your nose than in producing hormones. I'm sure that as you heal, your drive will return.
Are you on any painkillers or anything? they might have some effect on your sex drive.

Wait for those drugs to get out of your system and then go to town. Have you tried looking at pornography or other forms of stimulus?

yeah, i was. i was taking tylenol 3 with codine. betcha that messed stuff up, eh? i think im getting back to normal now though
When i was sick about a year ago, I was on a few medications, tylenol, cold medicine, and something else, anyway, I could hardly keep a hard on. it was quite amusing cause we were trying to have sex, well we were but just not very good lol for a while.so yeah, medications could easily affect your sex drive

It could be the stress of the surgery or it could be the result of the general anaesthetic.I had a general anaesthetic when I was about 14 and felt fine the following day. My dad had one when he was about 50 and IIRC it took him two weeks to feel himself again so it depends on age, and also how long you were under for.
