SIPS / SADI modified DS



Recommended Posts

Im a type 1 diabetic that did the band a year ago. I initially did well with it. Went down from 320 to 250. Well for some reason it slipped. Been recommended the rny gastric bypass. Somehow it was mentioned to me this new SIPS / SADI procedure that Dr. Roslin does and looking to hear if anyone has any experience or will be doing it.

What I understand is that the weight loss is better than the bypass and doesn't have the unpleasant dumping syndrome.

@stevodreo I had the SADI on April 1st and am doing very well. You can read about some of my experience throughout this thread: http://www.bariatricpal.com/topic/338303-may-2015-sips-patients/

I'd be more than happy to discuss any details you would like. I'm very happy with my recovery, weight loss and lack of unpleasant side effects (dumping, gas, bowel, etc...).

Ultimately, it is your desicion as to what is best for you. You will see in the other thread two of the main reasons I chose this procedure was my BMI was over 50 and I had extremely high triglycerides (lipids/fatty liver). This method is proven to very quickly resolve those issues. I also have severe obstructive sleep apnea. I will be making an appointment for a new sleep study/evaluation once I drop below 250 to see if the CPAP pressure requires adjustment or if I can get rid of the machine yet. (crossing fingers).

Thanks for responding!

So how bad have you found the malabsorption to decrease energy?

Also how large is the pouch left, like can you eat more than 4 z of food?

I've been considering the RNY bypass and I'm most concerned about the Dumping syndrome. Being that i'm a Type 1 Diabetic I'm nervous than when I have a low blood sugar and eat sugar to raise them ,that ill end up suffering then from dumping if that makes any sense.

@@stevodreo my only real decrease in energy was during the first three weeks, which is normal because of recovering from a major surgery. I went walking around EPCOT center on day 11 or 12...I kinda pushed it and over did but I really wanted a change of scenery. I'm almost 50lbs down and have a lot more energy than I did before surgery.

To begin with because of swelling the sleeve holds about 2-3 oz from what my doctor told me as you heal and the sleeve stretches a bit 4-6 oz is about what most people end up with. This is why they stress 5 small meals/day. It helps with energy and maintaining your blood sugar.

With the SADI you do have to commit to a life time of Vitamins. A special Multivitamin that is high in AEDK, Calcium, Iron, B-12 either sub-lingual weekly or injected monthly. I also have to take pepcid complete 2x/day for the first 6 months. I also chose to add Biotin (hair, skin, nails formula) for good measure. You will require 80-100 grams of protein/day so basically you become a carnivore but keep in mind fish and chicken are the leaner options. These were all things that I was wiling to accept to get healthy so I can enjoy my time with my children.

Do you know how the Vitamin deficiency compares with the gastric bypass deficiency?

How many days were you in the hospital? And how long did you take off from work.

@stevodreo I do not have the answer to that. I do know that DS/SADI do require higher levels of AEDK and Iron than RNY.

I was in the hospital for 3 days. They gave me the option to hangout for another day but the next day was Easter and I wanted to be home with my kids.

I took off for three weeks but could've easliy returned in two. I had the time off and spent most of the third week hanging with my sister, shopping and relaxing. :)

You might want to consider coming to a support group at Lenox Hill. There are often SADI patients there.

Thanks. I just met Dr Roslin. I think the sips is a great option for me. Im going to his seminar on Wednesday. How do I find out about the support groups?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
