Single anastomosis duodenal switch



Recommended Posts

I am Pre Op and surgery was approved and set for August 17, 2017. My surgeon highly recommends the Single DS for my case. I have not been able to find hardly anything online. Can someone give me some information based on your own experience. I completely trust my surgeon but just want to know a bit more. Thanks....

That's because it's such a new procedure. It has the potential for complications vastly more than the traditional DS. I had the Traditional DS three years ago. It's a procedure that's been around for a long time and doesn't have the complications that it used to.

IMO the SADS is just a lazy procedure that puts the patient at risk. The procedure creates a loop in your bowel that the food you eat will have to defy gravity to travel through the digestive track.

How is your experience with the traditional ds?

I've had a good experience. The only complications I had were related to my preexisting PCOS and my gallbladder, which is a common issue.

I eat rather normally now with extra Protein and fat. I take my Vitamins regularly. I stay active. Overall I'm great.

There are a few people with You Tube channels who have had this surgery and could give you a lot of information. I'm a modified DS patient (longer common channel), but I still watch video blogs from single anastomosis patients as well as VGS patients. I've learned a lot. You could check it out.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
