    Week 3 Post Op - Mushy Foods

    I know what you mean. I hate cream Soups and broths. LOL I never want them again unless I am using them to mix into something greater.
  2. Thank you so much. I hope it does. LOL

    Well maybe you can just collect everyone's email address and send out some eblast every month. Maybe you could work out a meeting place at different locations each month. Maybe some health food restaurants or small hotel conference rooms. Let me know if I can be of assistance by sending me a message. I ride in city park and I am occasionally in the french quarter. Its a bit shifty there on a bike. LOL Best, Slim
  4. I just ordered a bunch of things from www.lindasdietdelites.com. The list of low carb items is endless.

    Greetings everyone, I am currently residing in Baton Rouge, but I go walking and now bicycling in New Orleans every Saturday. I was just sleeved on May 11, 2012 in Mexico. The experience was great and life changing. I hope that I can make some friends here and exchange some experiences and such.
  6. 10 days out of surgery. I am doing well. I have more of an appetite now. My only issue is dreaming and thinking of food. LOL Does anyone else do that?

    Hey Guys

    Greetings Sleevers, I finally had GS surgery on May 11, 2012. I was sleeved in Mexico by Dr. Rodriguez. The experience was amazing and life changing. The one thing that drives me nuts is getting used to not eating. I can't believe how much food was a part of my life. I keep having dreams of food. LOL I may go to a therapist to discuss this issue. Any suggestions?

    Nervous About Mexico

    I go next month on February 15th to TJ. I know its difficult to make a decision, but just do as much research as possible. I am using Beliteweight and having Dr. Rodriguez perform my surgery. You can call them and ask as many questions as you would like. I see a lot of people that love Dr. kelly and Dr. Aceves. Dr. Kelly's prices aren't bad.

    Surgery In Tijuana

    Dr. Rodriguez has some pretty good reviews. That is who I am scheduled with. Whats wrong with Dr. Kelly?

    Has Anyone Used These Guys

    I tried looking for information on them as well and I couldn't find anything. You may want to check out Dr. Rodriguez, Kelly, or Aceves. Those are the doctors I hear about all the time. I am using Beliteweight.com for Dr. Rodriguez.

    Kelly, Aceves or Alvarez

    I too chose Dr. Ramos-Kelly. I think your comment was good information. I left him a personal email and he called me back today. However, I was unable to answer because I was at work. I will be speaking with him tomorrow before I leave for work. This is very helpful. I won't be able to have my sleeve done until Feb 2012 due to work, law school and saving the final 2k I need for the surgery. I am glad to hear that your conversation went well and that you posted the information about the condition. I would think that one should definitely get a physical before going to have this surgery. Try to find out if there are any issues concerning your health before having this procedure so far away from home. That could save your life. Doctors need to be informed of any preexisting conditions before a surgery is performed. Good Luck to everyone and I pray for everyone's success.
