    Default Hi All (insert wave here)

    My name is Jessica, I'm 43 and have recently made the decision to travel to Tijuana during the week of Christmas to have VSG surgery with Dr. Elias Ortiz, previously with "A Lighter Me". It wasn't an easy decision, but my insurance excludes it and even though it was declared medically necessary as I am diabetic, they absolutely will not cover it. I have decided that I need to do this for me and I wanted to see if there were others out there on the same journey as I am and share the excitement and terror together!

    For me, the best decision we (husband & I) ever made to spend money -- self-pay. And I only wish I'd had it done earlier.

    Keep asking questions!
