  1. Sorry to hear that your repaired hernia is painful. I had a hiatal hernia too but not as painful as yours. I did get slight discomfort with gas but what really helped me is children suppository. I had gas and well it hurt to push so I used my baby's suppository and whala...The pain dissipated. I hope this helps and you have a quick recovery.

  2. The surgery is not that bad... Gas is the most painful. I took gas-x but what helped is the suppository. I used children suppository the first week to relieve some discomfort. Also, listen to your stomach when full. Sip gradually and stick to your diet. Just my 2 cent during post op. Best of luck!

  3. Suzanne,

    Thank you for the encouraging words. Even though I am confident on my choice, I do feel some anxiety. This forum and your words of advice gives me strength. On a lighter note, all I keep relating to Mexico is its beautiful beaches so my goal is to go back with hubby and a bikini! :D

  4. First of all I want to thank everyone for sharing your story. This is a great board which allows all of us to express our most inner feelings. Dealing with overweight, I am determined to go for surgery. My mother had the surgery in March. She was borderline diabetic and is combating chronic back pain. She is more agile and healthier. I am happy for her and encouraged to have my procedure on July 30. She was covered by her insurance with wonderful results, thanks to God. Unfortunately, my insurance does not cover the procedure thus traveling abroad is my only hope. I am reluctant to have any of my family members travel with me. I need to do this by myself. I will have peace of mind knowing that my 3 toddlers are well taken care of. After much research, Dr. Aceves will be doing my surgery in Mexico. I am confident on his expertise along with his staff. I will soon join the sleeve family so please send positive energy my way. I am hoping to return to Mexico with hubby and a bikini!!!!

  5. Hi,

    I am new to this board but need to comment on your search. I will be traveling on the 29 for surgery on the 30 with Dr. Aceves. Nina, my patient coordinator mentioned that the doctor does up to 3 surgeries a day. Hopefully, we could encounter this experience together. I am a little worried and refuse to have any of my family there. I would much rather them help me with my 3 toddlers back home. I hear nothing but good from Dr. Aceves and his staff. I am confident and putting all my trust on his hands.

    My mom had her surgery covered by the insurance in march and she is a different and beautiful woman. I am happy to have encouraged her procedure.Unfortunately, my insurance does not cover thus, I'm traveling to Mexico. I am from a Hispanic decent so I fluently speak Spanish.

    I hope our journey is a memorable one!
