Recommended Posts

Wow awesome! Yes Smith and his team are amazing!! Love leah! I started at 287lbs, surgery 2/15/16 ... I am currently 193lbs.. I've had great results and no regrets! I'm so excited for you!! Such a huge step towards a healthy lifestyle! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask!

That is awesome! I had the SIPS surgery on 4/14/2016 and 294lbs. I am now currently 225lbs. And so far...Just like you I've had great results and no complications and ABSOLUTELY no regrets. The best thing I ever did for myself. So glad to hear a fellow wls person that has gone through the same thing I have.

@@LosGal! Nice results! Your making great progress! This surgery in my opinion is going to replace rny and sleeve. The results are amazing. I take my Vitamins religiously and get my Protein in. I am experiencing Hair loss but that is common at about 4to5 months out. I'm having lab done next week looking forward to see how well I'm doing.

I agree with you completely! My surgeon stopped doing the RNY bc he refused to do weight loss surgery and do another one which was the case with RNY.

My surgeon only does SIPS, sleeve and DS. My surgeon suggested the SIPS even though I went in with getting the DS. My surgeon suggested the SIPS but I had the final choice on the day of surgery.

I had the SIPS/SADI S Loop this past Monday August 8, 2016. I am a revision from a VSG and the first patient that my doctor has completed this surgery on. He has done several other types of revisions and decided to enter into this part of weight loss surgery with him as his first. I believe that this was the best choice for me. :D

Been a great experience for me. I have a 250cm common channel which helps with the malabsorption part. I take 2 multi Vitamins and 4 calciums a day. Average weight loss is about 5lbs a week so far had the procedure 6/8/16 good luck!

I'm pleased with my results. I have a 300 cm common channel. I'm down about 50 lbs since my pre-SIPS consult. Best of all I am off of all diabetes, blood pressure & cholesterol meds. I take 2 Multivitamins, 4 Calcium citrate, 2 ferrous sulfate, 25 mg zinc, 1 Vitamin C a day & 1 Vitamin A & 1 Vitamin E on alternating days. I'll have my 9-month post-op labs drawn tomorrow.

I am schedule for surgery Sept. 21st. I have started the liver reduction diet and I wondered if anyone could share tips/tricks for not feeling hungry? I find myself dwelling on it and that is of course making it worse. Thanks!

I loaded up on Water every chance I got. I especially had difficulty in the evenings. That's when I ate sugar free Jello and sugar free popsicles. I remember giving them to my step son at bed time instead of Water when he was younger. It helped keep me from being so hungry. At least I had that in my stomach before I tried to go to sleep. The two week diet is the hardest. The one thing you have to keep reminding yourself is that it's only temporary.

I just had a revision from a 2011 VSG to SIPS on Aug 8. I am down 24 pounds so far. I have a 300 cm common channel. The weight is coming off slower this time but I knew that it would be this way going in. I'm pleased withy results so far.

I have had a great experience! I had mine done on 6/8/15. No problems at all. Like everyone else, Vitamins, Vitamins, vitamins. However, all bariatric surgeries require that. Very pleased and have lost 175lbs.

I had my SA-DS/SIPS on Sept. 21, 2016. Dr. Enoch's is a fantastic doctor and said everything went very well. However, now that I am home, I am starting to stress out about what my future eating habits and meals look like. Can someone who is 4 months or more post surgery share what their meal plans look like, realistically? I am wondering if I will ever be able to go out to dinner with friends and family and enjoy a meal.

      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.
