Has anyone been to see this surgeon? I am looking at having a revision from sleeve to DS. I have Gerd thats really bad and I am at the point of where I throw up when it gets so bad.

I'm not sure a DS is going to help you since they have a sleeve stomach and a bypassed small intestine. Unless he's got some new way of doing it? Usually for GERD, they revise to gastric bypass, since that often cures GERD.

Yeah I know I'm just a little scared I guess to do bypass but then I think about it and the long term effects of GERD. I just want it to go away and lose 100 pounds.

Well I had RNY BYPASS and it was the best choice ever.

Lost over 150lbs.

to be honest, though, the DS is a riskier surgery than the RNY

How is it risker ? Also I know the weightloss is slower when we have the 2nd surgery. Did you have a 2nd surgery as well?

it tends to have more complications and a greater chance of nutritional deficiencies. On the plus side, though, you tend to lose more weight with it, and it's easier to maintain the loss (because of the malabsorption)

I've just had one surgery (RNY).

Yes much higher malabsorption issues with DS. Not many surgeon in Australia even do the DS.

My surgeon is one of the top in Australia and he said bypass is more than enough he doesn't do DS.

and to prove it I've lost over 150lbs in just 8 months.

yes but that was your first surgery. I am having to have a 2nd surgery. I wanted the bypass done when I had the sleeve done but my surgeon talked me out of it.

Well that's not right my surgeon did say sleeve is easier to do etc but I had my mind set on bypass I only wanted one surgery for life and that's why and I'm doing so well we just want you to be sure of all the pros and cons before you make the leap...
