Sleeve to loop duodenal switch (SIPS)



Recommended Posts

Little background, have the gastric sleeve almost 4 year ago have gained over 60 pounds back along with reflux and hiatal hernia has returned. Went to see my doctor and had recommended getting the SIPS procedure also called the loop duodenal switch. Would love to hear from anyone who has had this surgery and how successful it was. How much weight did you loss and at what rate?? Over all experience??

I know there have been some issues with reflux and the full DS. I'd ask my surgeon to consider if that's true with the single loop DS and/or the RNY.

I am so amazed on my progress with weightloss and how I feel and look! I had my surgery in 6/15 weight came off gradually and steadily. To date I have maintained my 150 lbs. If you have any specific questions just ask!

I was just discharged from the hospital. I had SIp yesterday. Minimal pain. I had a sleeve in 2013. Gained 51lbs back and was put back on bp meds. Something had to give.

No, I did not. This was my 1 and only shot of having SIPS. I couldnt be any happier! Surgery was easy going for me. Minimal pain. To date, no problems, no reflux, no weight issues, no more high blood pressure. Make sure you take your Vitamins.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
