    Thank you for posting about Dr Q, I am seeing 2 Doctors tomorrow and they are in the States.... I will have to go through 90 days of BS to get insurance to MAYBE approve me. I have been so worried about going to Mexico.... But this type of blog eases my worries. How are you doing now?

    Today REALLY is the first day of the rest of your life. Best wishes for a very uneventful and speedy recovery.
  4. I know. I have a constant battle in my head. I am so happy and so ready for the lifestyle change after so many failed attempts at losing weight, but at the same time I am so nervous. I have made a surgery date because I am self pay and do not have to wait on insurance. But I keep calling Bill and pushing in further back. I was all set for April 15th but now I'm thinking May. I know what I want but I cant help but to be unsure.
  5. I right there with you.. have no idea when my surgery date is yet . Waiting for approval from insurance.. I'm not doing very well with my eating at all right now. I know I should be exercising and losing some weight on my own . I have gave up pop that was a big first step for me so im ready for that its the rest.. so unsure good luck with our up coming surgeries..
  6. Where are you getting your procedure done? What surgeon are you going to? I am extremely nervous and it feels surreal. I believe it's going to be a life changing experience.

Dr. Quinones

by RachelMarie on 11-18-2014 at 10:52 AM
Hi all! I went and had my gastric sleeve surgery with Dr. Quinones in Mexico on August 12th 2014. My highest weight was 247. After a required two week pre-operation diet I got down to 239 lbs. The only thing I paid for that was not included was the flight, the hotel stay at a very high end holidae inn was also included. I can't say enough about the medical center and the staff. You start out talking with the patient coordinator Bill. He gives you the run down on the surgery, including prices and

Where is Mixiegirl??

by RachelMarie on 03-02-2014 at 07:37 PM
I know I don't know her personally and I've never talked to her. I have followed her post since I've joined almost a month ago. She was a very active part of this website and had a lot of good info. I have not heard anything from her since her surgery date and was wondering if anyone else has. Good or bad? My heart goes out to her and I hope all is well.

Change of plans

by RachelMarie on 02-18-2014 at 08:07 AM
Yesterday my seven year old son was once again asking about a baby brother or sister. I was scheduled to have my surgery in April. My partner shared with me that she was disappointed that there's a possibility of no children after this surgery. So I was out voted 2 to 1. Looks like my surgery is on hold for now, at least until I have a baby.

Can I please have some opinions on other surgeons besides almanza. I feel like I've been google searching for days with no luck. I would like to know my options before I just settle for the first surgeon found. I know he goes through weight loss agents, and they do payment plans. Does anyone know of other places in Mexico that offers something like this with no financing. Prices would also be awesome if at all possible

What was the condition of the Tijuana Hospital?

How was the hospital in Tijuana? Was it small or large? Did you have to go meet with the doctor before they scheduled the surgery?
