Hello, I am new to the group. I had my sleeve done back in 2013 and am now going to get the DS-SIPS procedure. While i know this form of the procedure is fairly new, i know there has to be someone who can answer questions for me, or give me insight, that has had the surgery more than a year...at least two years i'm hoping! Everyone i talk to or have seen in this group just got the surgery, and the responses, rants, concerns, and results are all over the place, leaving me a bit cloudy minded to say the least, lol..

Just wondering:

*what are your feelings toward having the procedure done after a year or more? any regrets? why?

*Are you still having to take an insane amount of Vitamins as u did when u first got the surgery? does it seem like your nutritional values gets easier to maintain? or harder?

*are you able to drink liquor at all? have you traveled with your surgery? (i go to cancun every year, thats why i am asking about liquor, lol)

* wats the best pre-op diet? i hear many different responses to what diet they first give you right after surgery...

* have you had any health issues that you feel were a result of this surgery?

I ask that you please be VERY honest in answering any of these questions. While i know the surgery seems like a good option rite now,i just want to know if long term this will be a good option for me...thanks in advance for any help and advice anyone gives me at this point...

      Had my gastric sleeve surgury on 12/28. I have lost about 15 pounds since surgery but have hit a stall. It is soooo frustrating! Any advice is greatly appreciated

        Just be patient. It sounds like a pat answer, but it is literally the only thing you can do to crush the dreaded 3 week stall!

        We have the same surgery day and the same problem. I’ve lost about 20, then stopped. I’m hardly eating anything, logging everything, getting my water and proteins. I don’t know what’s wrong. It’s so frustrating.

      I'm doing so well on the new plant-based way of eating! It's been 1 month since my final diet visit, where I found out I had gained about four pounds since my previous visit in November. That meant I had only lost 3 pounds overall from March-December 2017. Ugh, sad trombone. However, in the last 3 weeks of eating a plant-based diet I've lost 13 pounds from my December visit weight! And that includes Christmas and a vacation! So definitely not a "perfect" month by any means. I'm really hoping this way of eating will support my goal of reaching and maintaining 100% of excess weight lost.

        Hey whatever works! I've had a few friends go plant-based and drop a lot of weight naturally.
