    Default Dominican Republic

    In Dominican Republic there are great doctors. However I recommend Dr. Gustavo Rodriguez Blanco in Ginecologia y Obstetricia "Private Hospital", I had seen many patients including myself getting a great job. He is very human and he treats you wonderful, he really wants you to feel good and he takes all your calls.

    Regards,

    Hello!
    After the surgery I was totally in liquid and baby fruits food. Everything goes depending of the weeks you are after the surgery. In the week # 2 is when I took protein, "Prochure" I wasn't fan of it. Later in my week # 4, I was drinking slim fast then, I had to switch with the nutritionist, she is in charge of my food after a month and half after the surgery. Then she recommend "WHEY From GNC" and I change it for WHEY ISO GNC, the last one has no sugar and more protein and we should get 60 g of protein every day, so this one has 30g. Do not buy VANILLA CREAM is to thick and too strong the taste, yo will get tired soon.

    Every Dr. group have different way. I know Dr. Betances has different way to do things,my two cousins did the surgery with him and I considered to do it with him too, but I change my mind for some reasons I didn't feel good with him & his team, except for the anesthesiologist who is WONDERFUL, DR. RAMNEY JIMENEZ (ask for him to be your anesthesiologist if you will do it with Dr. Betances, I had two members of my family in 5 different surgery he was their, and I know him very well) , my Dr., Dr. Rodriguez Blanco he is all the time in courses with the top of the medicine and innovating himself to give the best to his patients and the most convenient. He is very supportive and a motivator.

    I recommend as well to have your mind clear that life will change a lot after surgery. So, good support in your emotional side.

    If you need any more advise and if you prefer in Spanish I will be more than happy to help you go true.

    Hugs,

    Diplo

    Mine will be in Dominican Republic, and I will pay US$ 8,500.00. Which is great as opposed to 16k that it was going to cost me here in Canada lol
