Not a terribly long post. 12 years ago today I had the DS.
Unlike a lot of other surgeries.....the DS (the original) has kept me thin for 12 years. I lost 300 lbs and kept it off.
Most days I forget that I had surgery, aside from popping 2 handfuls of vitamins a day- I'm pretty normal. No malnutrition, no explosive poops, no uncontrollable gas.
Take what you want from this post, but something that we said 12 years ago often on this board and maybe something that should be said more often, "Think twice, cut once," get the DS.
