    Just returned from being sleeved in Mexico with Dr. Almanza. Rest assured, very clean and new facility, professional, courteous, nice staff, never felt danger or unsafe conditions, other patients were supportive and encouraging. I am sure you will do fine. Don't hesitate to ask questions, and follow their guidelines to the letter.
    A few hints: Bring the heating pad, try to find Gas X strips, WALK, get the massage if they offer it (20 bucks)

    I am scheduled to have my sleeve in Mexico with Dr. Almanza on 9/4/18. I am nervous to go by myself, but I have heard so many success stories that I am confident it will be fine. So far they have been very helpful and supportive.

    If you go by yourself, please pack lightly. You cannot tote a lot of luggage. There were many there alone, but I was glad I had someone to help me or just to whine to. The gas and just overall discomfort the first 3 days are no joke. Overall, it was a good experience. You will meet new people and have a great support system.

    I get mine done on the 18th with Dr. Almanza as well! Do you mind if I ask what preop diet he ordered?
