Amount of weight lost

Recommended Posts

For those that have had the duodenal switch done, how much weight do you lose? Some of the research I did on this type of bariatric surgery have said that the average weight lost after 1 to 2 years after surgery is anywhere between 100-200 pounds. On the day I had surgery, I was 333.2 lbs and I am currently 293.8 lbs. My goal weight is 175 lbs. 

For those that were roughly around the same weight I was, were you able to get under 200 lbs 1 to 2 years after surgery? If you were not around the same weight as me, were you still able to get under 200 lbs?

I had surgery October 2016 and weighed 484 pound. July 2018 (21 months after surgery) I weighed 269 pounds (215 pounds in 21 months). July 13, 2018 I had skin reduction surgery and now 5 weeks after that surgery I weigh 220 pounds. 

Total loss: 264 pounds.

Hope this information helped.
