    Hi! wanted to update you all, I had my surgery 8/2/2018. I did very well the Doctor and the staff were second to none. The surgery went so well that i woke up, walked and begin to work to complete some deadlines I had to meet for my employer. My only concern I had this myth that the pounds would drop off immediately...didn't happen. I have been on this liquid diet 17 days and only lost 5lbs. Is that normal due to all the fluids that I was given in the hosp.....panicking I want this weight to be gone!!!!

    Mexico is better place to have it done all the personalized attention.

    It seems lower than I'd expect in that amount of time, off hand. We are all individuals & maybe your body is trying to adjust. Are you measuring to see if you are losing inches instead of pounds right now? That or are you a low BMI person who doesn't need to lose a lot?

    As to the weight reflecting IV fluids you were given, I would expect all of that to be gone after a few days tops.

    Welcome to the forum, Nikkie. I think you are wise to approach this with caution & open eyes. You can get references, but the tricky part is not everyone may be real. Maybe if you post specific questions you will get responses that are helpful to you.

    I just came home from my surgery in Mexico today. ☺. I would suggest getting a coordinator with good references to help. Mine scheduled everything for me, drove me across the border, even arranged for my room. She was available during the whole process and even stayed during the surgery. Good luck

    Mexico would have scared me to death, but many people here have had wonderful experiences.
