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.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
