  1. Here I am 10 days post op and feeling terrific. My experience was extremely positive. The staff and Drs were great. My only complaint was the temp at the hospital. They keep it very cool, so bring warm socks and a hoodie/sweater. Extra blankets were not available. Day two was uncomfortable but not painful. Walk, walk walk.......sip sip sip. Do those two things and your recovery will be much smoother. All shuttles were on time and great drivers. I am deliberately staying away from the scale until two weeks post op, but my clothes are definitely looser. I just took my stitches out today with no issue. Sorry for this general update, but I have zero regrets. I also bought some B6 shots at the Mexican pharmacy and will take those weekly.

    Hey Vonnie, We dont have the same Dr but I think Dr Hernandez is in the same group. Which hospital did you go to? Did you ever go to Hotel Hacienda Del Rio?

    Vonnie I am considering the Same Doctor. Please tell me as much info as you can about your procedure. Is it a hospital or a clinic? Who did you book through? Anything you wish you had known? How are you doing so far? Post op pain, difficulty? What phase are you in now? Sorry if so many questions. I hope all is going as you had hoped it would!

    I just turned 55. I want my life back! I want to be able to move around & feel good again.
  4. Fly tomorrow night....surgery Monday:-)
  5. 13 more days!!! I am into my pre op diet or two shakes and then a high protein meal in the evening. Drinking tons of water. And starting my shopping for after surgery. I’m not nervous about the surgery, but I am apprehensive about my love for carbs. Why does pasta taste soooo good? So I’m going to try some vegan pastas......whats been your biggest challenges?
  6. I took the big step today of booking my sleeve surgery for January 22nd. I am so excited and thrilled to begin on this journey. 2018 is going to be my year on so many levels. 56 years old, a new grandmother and a Harley rider. When life throws you a curve lean into it :-). I will be asking all kinds of advices Iím sure.....
