  3. You look FANTASTIC!!! Congratulations on a difficult journey. Hope I look that good in a few months...I'm stayin' the course.
  4. Thanks everyone I'm home doing well! My first week home was really hard. It was more psychologically and emotionally than anything and is still at times. Watching your family eat and even sitting at the table with your 2 bites is weird and everyone kinda looks at you because your bites are smaller now and your testing the waters with yourself still to see how many little bites you can take before your full. Its alot to get used too, but I have lost 23lbs! My Dr was great and all the staff. The clinic was very clean but nothing special. I definitely recommend the iv drip in your hotel room the next day. I was a little nauseous didn't want to go to clinic. The fast pass is also a definite must. YOU get to bypass all the traffic going bk into the US! Also, I would bring a heating pad with me you may have horrible gas pains in your upper back like me. My mother went with me. I'm so glad she did! I needed someone that night after surgery! My usual lower back pain and my right foot pain that I would have on a daily basis are gone! They have not hurt anymore!! Anymore questions just ask

Hey guys and gals! I am down 25lbs! My surgery went well! Dr. Almanza at Jerusalem Clinic in Tijuana did mine. The staff was real nice and the clinic was very clean. The Hotel TIcuan was clean also, but is next to a night club so you may want to bring earplugs or sleeping pills lol! There is a nurse at hotel that will change your bandages daily and you can have all the popsicles, broth, and juice u can handle. You may also get your iv fluids in your hotel room. I recommend that I was a little nauseous

Time is winding down! Starting my Pre-Op diet next weekend! It's gonna be hard, but oh so worth all the solid deprivation. Thinking and wondering how my appetite will be after surgery which I know wont be much! Im thinking about things that will change... But its definitely worth it! I have been making a list in a notebook titled: What I Won't Miss About Being Fat!
A few on the list are: trying to squeeze through tiny spaces like public restrooms and aisles, my back and feet hurting from

Passport-Government Shutdown?? is this a problem?

by redhead_mb85 on 10-12-2013 at 10:47 AM
Has anyone that has had surgery this past week or so had problems getting their passport?? I have an appt this Friday to get my application processed and I'm paying extra to get it in 2wks. Does anyone think there will be a problem getting it due to all the government issues?
