4 1/2 months after converting my sleeve to a DS, I've lost the 35 pound regain I had after VSG. When I first had my VSG I lost 87 pounds in 18 months, but 24 months in, I started stalling and it was taking a lot of work to stave off the weight. Unfortunately, by 36 months in, I was regaining, and eventually picked up almost half of what I'd lost. And I never hit my initial goal of 150 pounds. Though I dont think I'll ever get to my initial goal even with the DS, I'm happy that Ive lost the regain. And I'm even happier that I have a "stronger" tool that can help me fight an uptick. I'm hoping to lose another 25 pounds, and if I do that would be awesome!!
