I haven't had surgery yet. I would never recommend surgery to someone; I don't talk about it unless someone else brings it up first or is already considering it. However, I do recommend people look into the DS if they have type 2 diabetes. The DS by and far has the best statistics of any current WLS for resoultion of type 2 diabetes, and so many people get WLS without even knowing the DS exists!

Anyway, that's my bit - I am pre-op but I still make recommendations based on the research I've done. I will NEVER say the DS is the best for everyone - there is no "one size fits all" surgery - but I feel sad for people seeking revisions to a DS who say they had never even heard of it when they got their other surgery.
