Cc length


Well-Known Member
I had a revision from RNY to DS almost 5 years ago with Dr K. I don’t know what my CC length is but assume he used the Hess method as is his standard.

Has anyone had the Hess method not allow them to lose or maintain weight loss. I initially lost about 30-40 pounds (has a j tube for 6 weeks) and was just scared to eat lol. However I am steadily putting on weight I am now at or just above my revision weight. I don’t seem to malabsorb much (I take no vitamins and numbers are perfect) I am at less than 30 carbs pwr

"Conclusions: The length of the CC contributes significantly to successful excess weight loss in BPD and BPD DS patients. In general, the length of the CC should not exceed 100 cm."
