Reading through some of these it really is interesting. I was pretty set on the sleeve but then i was being told that bypass is better for diabetes so i started shifting to the bypass but i am scared stupid at the idea of having a 30 - 50 cc pouch to start off with. Now reading the article that took 3 different studies and combined the results and discussed the weight loss vs comorbidites resolution vs surgical revision and it is interesting that the deciding factor is actually more along the lines of those who have had GERD more than those who have diabetes. Interestingly enough the 5 year mark show only a very little favor toward bypass in weight loss and even then by a margin that is statistically too small to say there is a statistical difference (absolute difference of 7.2%).

Much more to think about now. I'm just starting this journey so we will shall yet see which route it takes me.
