    Thanks Rob for the Shout out. Its been a real pleasure helping you and I’m so excited for whats ahead of you. I can’t believe how much this surgery has helped and changed my life. I’m so greatful for Doctors like Dr Almanza. Hope you were able to sit out by that beautiful pool area.
  2. Thank you for all the support and info that everyone has shared especially Tamara!
  3. Well day 2 post-up! Yesterday (day of surgery) wasn't to bad. Some discomfort but I did a good deal of walking to assist getting the gas out! Today definitely had more pressure on my upper abdomen. It is not really pain but just a bad discomfort. Continue to walk and eat GasX all you can do. Was able to start drinking water, ice cubes and juice today! Very exciting! Headed back to the hotel in just a little bit for the next two days. I think I will sit by the pool and do some reading. Once again both hospital and hotel staff very accommodating.

    Thank you. Can you tell me how what happened when you arrived at Mexico. What were the steps you went threw up to the surgery.

    Okay I just read the info about 4 patients dying under the Dr's care. Can some one tell me about their experience with Dr. Mario Almanza. I'm going alone and I am scared. My surgery is scheduled for 9/5/17.

  14. Thanks Again for all the insight. It was very helpful! Any particular protein shake you liked?
  15. Well, just jump in and let them know what you have planned, and why, and ask if they will be willing to take care of you in the future & any future care needs you may have related to the surgery. No one knows how their doctor will react, but you have to find out. If the answer is no, at least you have time to find a different doctor before your sleeve. It really is important. There are not a lot of follow up needs with gastric sleeve, but there can be some. Labwork, etc. My doctor told me she was perfectly willing, but she needed guidance from Dr. Lopez on what labs to check. And he gave me a list to forward on to her. I went through global protective solutions, but there are lots of companies out there that offer medical tourism coverage. Again, not because of where the surgery is done - but because you go private pay your normal health insurance may exclude it. The insurance policy was good for a year. I still saved a lot of money going to Mexico, & my health insurance here in the US doesn't even cover bariatric surgery so I would have had to go private pay to have it - no matter what.
