So I've had three weight loss surgeries - started with Lap Band with Dr. Ortiz, Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Aceves and then Duodenal Switch with Dr. Esquerra.  Each procedure has taught me so many things and I am so very grateful to go thru the process of all three.  My final WLS - the Duodenal Switch has been amazing.  It not only got me to goal weight, but I have kept it off (I go back and forth with 10lbs but I'm ok with that).  The DS may not be for everyone, but I'm so glad I had the opportunity to have it done!
