    You have been so reassuring,thank you for your comments.I will be using that DR.and facility soon.What about usa aftercare.My PCP has really not been involved in the decision and I don't think she'd be too supportive.She gave me diet pills which gave me palpatations.At 60,thats not the route for me.Im afraid of complications and having no one to call.

    Hi Im having my surgery with Dr.Valenzuela on June 10. She is returning from maternity leave May 16th. I have a lot of orthopedic issues that have made me decide to finally get healthier.My bmi is around 35 so I have really been discouraged,while I look forward to being smaller,mobility is my first factor here.Im really concerned about after care back in the states.I haven't shared my surgery info with anyone but my husband and a girlfriend. Any suggestions?
  3. I made it thru the surgery and being this is my first ever surgery, I would call it a piece of cake! (no pun intended) The Mi Hospital in Tijuana was just great! I felt very safe there and at no time was I feeling any real pain. They kept me up on my meds and vitals, were very caring and kind and one little nurse especially was so gentle at changing my dressings, but I don't remember her name now. Anyway. I would do it again in a heart beat! No problems coming home except for delays in the airlines the day I returned. And so far, my new stomach is adjusting well. Everything that I have put into it, has stayed down and not bothered me at all. Anyway, to all who are just still thinking about it, my advise is to go ahead and change your life for the better. It was less traumatic than a teeth cleaning for me.

    Hi Martha, I'm a newbie and will also be having surgery with Dr. V. Would like to hear about your experience with her. My surgery is Friday the 22nd. Can't wait! Alice
  10. Hi Deneen, nice to meet you. I am not taking anyone with me, but I am sure they have the beds for the companion there at the Mi Hosp. Yes that is where I am going to be. I will let you know when I get home how it was. Martha

    Hello Meisenlord, You only have six days yay! Christy from Mexico Bariatric Center is my coordinator, she is really great. I am so excited for you. Yes please let me know how your surgery goes. Are you bringing anyone with you? Let me know if there is a place for a guest to stay at the hospital. Are you going to MI Hospital? Thank for contacting me. Deneen
  12. Thanks for checking on me Leslie. I am getting excited about the trip this week coming up. It has arrived quicker than I thought. But, I am happy to get this over with. I have been fantasizing about losing so much weight as I have never been thin in my life. Anyway, I will post about my experience when I get home. And I have been doing very well on the pre op diet. Slipped up one day but not bad. Tonight tho, I have a wedding to go to in Vail, so that will be a challenge. But I am flying out on Sunday and will be home next Friday night. Wish me luck!
  13. Hey there! Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. You must be getting excited about your surgery. I had my 2 hour education class on Friday and my pre-op hospital testing. The class was really informative. I won't be going through the pre-op diet. My BMI is right at 35 with 1 co-morbidity (sleep apnea). The doctor is concerned that my insurance will deny the coverage if my BMI drops below 35. I've been really pleased with how everything has progressed. Keep me posted with how you are doing and I'll check in with you next week to see how you are doing.

    It's nice to have someone close by who will be going through the same procedure. I live near Mustang corners where Hwy 90 and 82 intersect (turn left at the light to head to Sonoita).

    I'am having surgery with Valenzuela Dec 16,2013. MI Hospital
  15. Yes, my name is Martha Eisenlord, and I live off hwy 90 to Bisbee. I haven't had the surgery yet. I am going to Tijuana for mine, as I am a self pay. My surgery is Nov. 18. I too am apprehensive. I do have an idea of where you live. I go by there anytime I leave SV. LOL. Best of luck on your surgery, and I will keep in touch. I have just started my pre op diet today and that is what I am the most scared of, is NOT being able to stick to it. You feel that way too?
