Duo switch should lose quicker bit can have issues with deficiencies more so than a bypass as it is more aggressive.

I had the bypass and I've lost over 150lbs already :)

most people lose more weight with the DS, and it's easier to maintain your loss, but like Superman said, there's a greater chance of Vitamin deficiencies with it since A LOT more of your small intestine is bypassed. But other than that, I'm not sure what to tell you. I know some DS'ers have to educate their PCP's and other doctors on the DS when things happen because it's not a common surgery - whereas RNY is very common so doctors are going to be pretty familiar with that (if this is even an issue for you...). I don't know - they're both good surgeries.

My opinion DS, just going by the Numbers and long term weight loss maintenance. Full disclosure I am considering a sleeve to DS revision myself.
