Hi all, I got my surgery date. February 15th, 2018. It'll be a good Valentine's day. I met Dr. Parker today. He was very nice and did his best to give me my options and the side effects of everything. I told him I wanted the DS and gave all of that info and all of the research I did and why I wanted it. He said it wasn't the best fit for me and thinks the bypass will get me the most bang for my buck. He reiterated the gassy and poopy side effects of the DS and while I convinced him to schedule me for the DS it did put the grain of worry in my head. I've done my research and weighed the pros and cons of each and I'm terrified of making the wrong decision. I guess I'm just looking for people who have done it to tell me it'll be okay. I also wish I had some idea of what kind of recovery I'll have. Everyone is so different I won't know until I'm dealing with it.
