    Default Hi Y'all....serious questions for Mexico sleevers.

    I am having surgery in January with Dr Almanza. I am worried that I do not know enough about VSG surgery because I am having it in Mexico. I have researched a lot, but I am worried that I miss something about how to eat after surgery,about chewing for 20 seconds and not drinking while eating and about how much protein to take afterwards. Do they tell you anything about this after surgery?

    You get a packet of instructions from the coordinators. I would think you would have gotten it already - I don't remember when I got mine actually but I do remember getting the material of pre-op and post-op etc from the coordinator beforehand

    I had surgery with him a little over a month ago. They will give you post op papers for your diet up to week 5.

    I have really good paperwork from my surgeon here in Texas. If you want to PM your email I can send you scans of it. I have it on my computer and send it to anyone who is needing additional guidance. As for knowing enough, read up on here as much as you can. Post on the forums when you have questions or need support. The more you are active on here, the easier the journey is. Welcome and congrats on your decision to be sleeved.
