Loop Duodenal Switch vs Duodenal Switch SADI-S



Recommended Posts

Are these the same things? I am trying to do more research on the procedure but I keep finding it called Loop Duodenal Switch or Duodenal Switch and was wondering if they are different procedures or the same one. Thank you for any help! Plus if you've had it, I would really like to know if you had any complications!

@livefatdreamskinny The loop is the same as the Sips, Sadi, single anastomosis.

The traditional, full or double-anastomosis is different aka duodenal switch.

@jdmcappo @Lady98 would love love to hear anythng you have to say about your surgery. I am a VSG revision candidate and I’m sick aboit my weight regain.

Did you both revise or do the Loop in one operation? Do you feel confident you can keep the weight off? VSG regain is about 50% and I can’t find any numbers on the loop regain. Were you concerned about the lack of long term data with the loop? And also does your surgeon perform both and encouraged you to do the single not double?

I live in Boston and there are no surgeons that do the full DS and the one I currently go to has only done 3 loops.

Lastly has your life changed drastically? Can you go out to dinner without needing a bathroom break? Are there things you avoid socially otherwise that make you regret having the loop done?

Thank you SO MUCH for any advise as I make this decision!

@onmyway11Condider coming to NY if you want the SIPS. Dr. Roslin at Lenox Hill Hospital has done a ton of them.

I had the loop DS done in Colorado, my surgeon here has been doing then for several years. Happy to chat more in DM.

I'm only just starting week 4, but I've been out for Breakfast (fried egg and mashed chicken sausage patty, only ate a third of the patty), coffee (decaf late with skim milk, no sweetener), and lunch (Qdoba, mini bowl with chicken, pinto Beans, fajita veggies and guac, couldn't even eat half), and have tolerated all of that just fine.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.
