    Is duodenal switch too drastic?

    I'm 5'7, 250 and am having the DS on the 26th. I decided on doing this (along with my physician) as the results are longer lasting and I have Type 2 Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. Health wise, this is the best option.

    Modified Duodenal Switch

    @california guy, Thank you for response. I am very excited, just nervous (as is normal)! Congrats on your weight loss! @Ms. Mocie, I honestly don't know other than the modified version is reportedly less invasive and easier? I am hoping it's easier recovery wise as well.

    Modified Duodenal Switch

    Newbie and SO excited about surgery....at least I think I'm excited! Initially went to my first appointment thinking I would have the gastric sleeve, but left leaning toward having the Modified Switch. Would love to hear how others surgery went - I want the good, bad and ugly. I would love to hear from any other "switchers"!
