  1. Replying to this a few years too late – but should anybody else have interest I had the duodenal switch July 7, 2020. I started at 260 pounds and lost 23 pounds pre-op, not because they told me to, but because I needed to prove to myself that I was ready to make the necessary changes to be a healthier me. It came easier than I thought and the mini-wins helped out allot! And by that I mean seeing my ankle bone again, fitting into smaller jeans, my back not hurting from walking after 5 minutes. I was on metformin from Feb 2020 to present which also played a role in the pre-op weight loss. I found my surgeon, Dr. Neichoy at The Panhandle Weight Loss Center in Amarillo Tx. From the moment I scheduled my consultation to actually having it, I was welcomed and comfortable and knew instantly I wanted him to do my procedure. After surgery I was up and at it with no issues. Even at the third day out, I’ve had no issues. Liquids are going down as they should, I’m able to meet my protein goals daily. I feel so good, that it feels too good to be true. My incisions are sore but the swelling has gone down, the gas is not as unbearable as I thought it would be. The main thing to remember for anyone is that everyone’s journey is different. And don’t listen to other peoples horror stories!
  2. Thank you! I’m taking docusate twice a day per rx direction. I just wasn’t sure if I was supposed to have one so far. Thank you for the insight and support!
  3. Just had my surgery done 7/7/2020 with the DS. I feel amazing as of 2 days later... but it feels too good to be true. No issues with keeping down liquids and getting my protein goals daily. TMI- But still no bowel movements...Just looking to relate or at least feel like I’m on the right track.
  4. I'm 2 days post-op and I feel amazing. I feel weird for feeling so good. I'm actually worried..... No sickness, everything is staying down. It's almost too good to be true.
