    I had the same reaction from people. They thought I was crazy. Never did I feel unsafe, danger or anything negative. The hospital is brand new and behind a locked gate. There is someone at the gate at all times. No one can just go in and out. The hotel was the same, new, had people all around. Never felt unsafe. Many of the nurses and staff spoke enough English to understand. The Dr has a heavy accent and sometimes they think before they talk, but I could understand everything they said all times. I think its very important you bring someone with you though. You need to have an advocate that will look out for you and get things for you. The first few days are rough. We were scheduled to go shopping but after waiting an hour and a half for the shuttle van we were told it wasnt available. It was okay though. After thinking about it, none of us were really up for the trip.

    Hey ma'am,
    To be honest, the overall experience was great. I felt safe, the staff was wonderful, supportive, and helpful. Truly, I only met the DR once. He met us in the lobby area of the hospital to explain the surgery to us as a group, then posed for a photo op. Never saw the man after that ever. Everyone else was constant, same nurses, staff, but I never laid eyes on the DR after the lobby experience. I guess he did the surgery... lol Others checked on us, but never him. What else would you like to know?

Off to a Great Start!!!

by SapphireLevaou on 08-16-2018 at 03:29 PM
So my great start is that I went to my PCP yesterday and I let the doctor know that I was going to be having Gastric Sleeve in Tijuana Mexico. He said that its fine and that they will look me over when I come back so I'm so excited right now that I have an American doctor that is willing to work with me Post- OP VSG!!!. Also my parents at first were scared for me to go to Mexico like at all but we have the same chiropractor and so the doctor that aligns out back she's hispanic and she informed my

Omg i can't believe I'm having surgery again. My name is Brianna I'm 22 recently married on august 8 2017 to my wonderful other half Sean. I previously got the brazilian butt lift and breast aug for bigger boobies on June 2015. At the time or a bit before I got the surgery done my oldest sister told me to just do squats and that i'd get the butt I wanted but I was like nope I wont not even close to the size that I want and then she suggested that with the money I was saving for my brazilian to use
