yes. I lost 235 lbs with the RNY, and the DS is a stronger surgery than the RNY.

It should be possible but the actual number doesn't really matter. You should target feeling good about yourself and being healthy. That is almost guaranteed with a combination of wls your personal commitment.

Short answer, Yes! But what you don't want to hear, it will be work both to get the weight off and keep it off. Make sure you KNOW what surgery you are getting because there are many look alike procedures. Do a lot of research and read!
