Recovery from Sleeve to DS?



Recommended Posts

So basically just the intestinal part of the DS surgery if that makes sense. I have my sleeve already in place since 2014 😉


Curious about how recovery might go. My sleeve recovery was okay, nothing major but there were plenty of situations with the stomach that were challenging due to the extreme restriction at the beginning.


Any thoughts, experiences, opinions?

Yea they keep the sleeve and then do the rest to make it a DS

I had bypass and it's not that dissimilar to DS recovery was fine just sore for a few days...

Wow, I can see where you would be possibly unhappy with the effects you are dealing with ( I read your pros and cons).

Are you currently thinking of changing back to sleeve? Did you lose your extra weight you were needing to lose when you revised to the DS? Was the actual surgical recovery painful or difficult?

I am sure you are trying everything possible, but , curious if diet changes are having any impact on the gastrointestinal issues at hand that you are living with.

Thank you for sharing! @Wisconsin_Gal

I am a revision patient from sleeve to modified DS. I haven’t read Wisconsin_Gals post but from my personal experience any strong odors or diarrhea is from my own bad behavior. If I’m playing by the rules I have neither. Good luck with your decision!

Thank you so much @onmyway11!

How is it going for you so far? Also curious as to your decision process between the regular DS and the modified... what pushed your decision toward the mod version if you are willing to share!

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

      New here just looking around. Hopefully if I have any questions this will be a good place to come for answers. I finally was able to get in to see a doctor about having a surgery and everything has been set up to get the ball rolling. Lord willing it will be able to happen in 2021. I spent to many years denying I needed help and I've just yoyoed every year, I want to be around for my daughters.
