I agree, unless you are a light weight I would check into the DS and get a second opinion

Hi, Kathy! Thanks for responding! I was just asking if there is a weight limit for having the DS? I'm 5'4 and weigh 200 pounds. I'm going to contact Dr. Keshishian to see if he takes my insurance. I'm in San Diego and no one here does the DS.

Will do for sure!

It's your body. Do what you feel is right for you. Good luck!

Thank you so much!
In the end, I would do what you feel best. It's your body. If you feel you have done your research and you know where your decision comes from, make it a point to let him know. You are the one who will have to live with the surgery. I would say unless you have bad GERD, the sleeve is a wonderful choice.

I'm going in again to ask for an endoscopy to see if there are any issues with my esophagus. Hopefully, all is well. If so, I'm going with the sleeve.

I had RNY years ago and would do it again in a heartbeat.
