  3. Hi Everyone, sorry I haven't connected I was having issues with my laptop. I am doing great. Pain is almost completely gone. My experience thus far as been excellent. The hospital was top notch and definitely USA standard and the hotel as well. I am flying out tomorrow. As of today I can get out of bed by myself which I am very happy about.

    Thank you for all the prayers and good vibes. I really do appreciate it. I posted my experience about my surgery in the Oct 2016 group if you would like to go and read it.

  12. Hi Everyone,

    I am scheduled for my GS in Tijuana, Mexico with Doctor Alejandro Lopez on October 6, 2016. I previously had the lapband surgery also done in Mexico in May 2007. The lapband was a total let down. In order for me to loss weight I had to have if really tight to where everything would get stuck (no wonder I lost weight).

    I am very excited about all the positive things people have to say about the sleeve. Can't wait to start my journey.

Chills with low grade fever

by Gabifg on 10-17-2016 at 12:26 PM
I have been feeling great thus far. The pain in my abdomen has really decreased so since I can now have milk I decided to stop at Starbucks and get me a chai tea latte (small). A couple of hours later, I started getting the chills. That lasted for about 2 hours and then I got a low grade fever. I took tylenol twice and broke the fever but my questions is, is this a normal reaction?

Unflavored Protein!!!!

Hi Guys,

Thanks in advance!

I came across Doc Almanza but
