Look into the SIPS procedure. I too was on the fence but my surgeon was studying SIPS and it’s been amazing so far. All the plusses with very few minuses. No dumping, GERD, cured my dt2 and has longer successes than VSG
A majority of them are being done in Utah,NJ and at Duke. You can find some surgeons that are doing them around the country. Many have been doing it as a revision but I had mine done all as one




My bonus dad had sips and he loves it whereas my bonus mom had RnY but his procedure was a year after hers and wasnt an option for her.

My surgeon suggest RNY for a few reasons. 1) I have mild GERD. 2) I have a bad metabolism and he says the sleeve is more for someone who overeats, I don’t have much of an appetite so the sleeve would be of no help to me, however, the bypass fixes your metabolism. 3) I do not have these ailments but I have a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, and stroke. Bypass is a preventative measure for these things. At the end of the day you have to choose which surgery is right for you. I choose to trust my surgeon. Hoping for a late May/early June date. Best wishes!

I wanted the sleeve because the bypass scared me. I had the bypass because my surgeon said it was the best option for me and I would lose the most weight. I heard of people getting the sleeve and then having the revision later if they did not lose enough weight. I was having none of that. One surgery only for me, lol. I am so happy with my decision. I have not had any complications and my recovery was a breeze. I know several people who had the sleeve and wish they did the bypass.
