Hey everyone!! I am new here and am SO glad I found you all. I had my sleeve done in Mexico (I know... ) back in 2011. I have no complaints, except there was no after surgery care. So, long story short... i have gained almost all my weight back and would really like to hear from some of you about re-sleeving or another surgery that would help me. I am looking to lose, atleast, 80lbs. I don't think I want the DS, simply for the malabsorbtion and dumping issues it comes with, however, I would still like to hear from someone having gone thru each of the surgeries. Thanks in advance!

You're right the DS is extreme but the happy medium is the RNY bypass :) it's better than sleeve but not as extreme as DS

if you don't have dumping now, you won't dump with the DS. The DS has a sleeved stomach and a bypassed small intestine. Since you already have a sleeved stomach, they don't have to do that piece of it - they'd just do the intestinal part. They're not going to have to do anything to your stomach since the VSG is phase 1 of the DS.

I had a sleeve done in 2013. I lost significant weight then re-gained most back. This year I got the SADI-S modified DS. Between the surgery and changing my diet, I've lost 87 lbs. this year. I'm happy with my decision and expect to lose more weight this year and keep it off.

Hello, I had my sleeve done in 2014 (394lbs down to 255lbs). I did regain weight aswell (295lbs.. current), original goal (230lbs never reached). My surgeon advising going with modified DS as a revision. He mentioned increased bowel movements with this procedure. How has this experience has been for you?. Im concerned about lack of control or the constant need to go and other possible side effects.

Modified DS has worked well for me. For me, bowel movements are different from prior to surgery. I'd say they are sporadic. I can have many in one day then none for a couple of days. I haven't had any lack of control.

Having VSG surgery, losing weight and regaining was a lesson for me. Now this time around after the revision, I'm taking the nutrition plan seriously. I'm eating healthy foods all day at the right portions. I've never followed a diet plan so carefully before without having some junk food time to time.

From the research I did prior to selecting this procedure, I read the modified DS is offered as a procedure that reduces dumping syndrome and diarrhea because you keep the pylorus (opening from stomach). Surgeons claim it has a lower degree of GI side-effects and resolves irritable bowel syndrome.

Research your options and ask your surgeon all the questions you have. Good luck with your journey!
