I'm going to start the qualifying process for the duodenal switch surgery. Any information anyone can share with me, would be very appreciated.

Surgery... time... hospital stay... pain after surgery... recovery time... cravings... taste bud changes... prolbems... success stories... anything...

My surgeon told me to gather as much information and join support groups... any other other sites.... chat rooms.... ect...

Thank you in advance

DS isn't all that common. You might want to check out another forum - Obesity Help. They have some long-time DS'ers over there.

That's the site for Dr. Keshisian. He has a fairly extensive archive of his blog posts which cover all sorts of things, most at least tangentially related to the DS and WLS.

A recent article that he wrote over on OH

https://www.obesityhelp.com/articles/duodenal-switch-post-op-one-year/

This is one of the best resources that I have found recently (and a nice guy, too.)

Another site, that isn't what it once was, but still good is

You can also look into different DS practices to see if they have accessible online support meetings which can also give you some additional insights.

I am also getting a DS but from sleeve. My Dr literally drew out everything for me because I was having a hard time finding info. I am aware of the success long term which is what im looking for.
