Gastric sleeve revised to single anastomosis duodenal switch



Recommended Posts

I had the sleeve done five years ago. I got pregnant eight months after. I lost 88 pounds from the sleeve and gain to 60 back. November 14, 2017 I had the single anastomosis duodenal switch. I lost 14 pounds the first two weeks and have not lost but have gained 1 pound in the last two weeks. For those of you out there that I’ve had this done has it been successful for you? Is the weight-loss slow and steady? Can you share some of your experiences

Straight into the DS. I was 399lbs and my surgeon was like this would give me the best short and long-term results. And I will say it has.

Did you have a single Anastomoses switch or the traditional DS ?

Was it the traditional DS or the modified single Anastomoses duodenal switch

Are most VSG surgeons also doing DS? I am still in the Investigation phase and have a great rapport with my VSG team, so I would like to stay put. I will be talking with them next week - Nutritionist team first, then the Surgeons. Any insights??

The single anastomoses is relatively new in comparison to the traditional DS.

And no, not all surgeons who do the VSG can do the traditional or the single anastomoses DS. They do require much more training as both (especially the traditional DS) are much more complex surgeries.
