Thanks so much, Blackberry. In the end, i decided not to go with the revision next year. I'm going to give myself one more year to get back on track. Knowing there are people like you out there that can do it gives me hope. If I could lose 20 pounds I'd be pretty happy and pretty comfortable at that weight. Thanks again!

Wow I hope everything goes well for you. I was sleeve 2015 never reached goal weight but I myself know I didnt continue to follow my program. Since June 1 I began to follow my program again and down 20 pounds. Hopfully by end of October I'll be down another 20 if I stay focused. I know others that have had revisions done so very satisfied some not but you have to do what makes you happy and pray for the best all the way around. Sending sweet blessings to you.

Well, I have made the commitment. I'm getting the duodenal switch done in Mexico next month, and I am really scared of the side effects. I don't want it to affect my life with me husband - like, what about long drives if I need to go to the bathroom? Or going out on hikes? Woke up very nervous this morning, almost to the point of canceling.

Hi, Jennie. Yes, I am considering DS or a mini-gastric bypass. The doctor that did my sleeve said the DS would be too severe for me, but another doctor has approved me for it. What do you think? Have you had many unpleasant side effects? Thank you so much for any info you can share! I'm having a very hard tie with this decision.

Hi, Jennie. Thanks so much for writing back. That's amazing! And encouraging! Thank you so much! Yes, I have had the gastric sleeve, and now considering the DS, but I'm not sure if I can find someone to do it, as my BMI is about 29.4. I would have to say that the sleeve didn't really work for me, at this point :(

I had the bpd do also known as duodenal switch 12/15/16. I have lost 90 so far, 8 on the pre op diet and 82 since. Are you considering the surgery.
