    Nebraska Sleevers...

    I'm in Omaha. I was sleeved May 23, 2012 in Mexico. How are you doing?

    Missing Person?

    I had my sleeve surgery in Juarez with Dr Rodriguez. I had great care and no problems whatsoever. The staff at the hospital were very competent and kind. I wasn't willing to put my family in debt $25,000 to have the surgery locally in Omaha. I have no regrets at all.

    May Sleeves Let's Show Our Stuff!

    Surgery date May 23 I'm down 66 lbs. starting weight 279, current weight 213. Best thing I've ever done!
  4. I'm 9 days out from being sleeved by Dr Rodriguez in Juarez Mexico. I had excellent care and absolutely no problems. I feel great. Dr Rod and his staff were awesome and took good care of me. I went to Mexico because my employer chose to exclude wls on its insurance coverage, and self pay in Omaha was going to be $21,000. I wasnt willing to put my family in debt for this surgery. I paid $6800 plus airfare. I wouldn't change a thing.
  5. I'm 3 days post-surgery and i say definitely yes, you should find help at least for the first few days. I'm feeling pretty good today (with pain pills) but bending over or lifting anything are still painful. And I don't have kids to take care of. You will need to take care of yourself.
  6. I'm on my way ... Feeling nervous and my stomach is queasy. Praying I've made the right decision and that today marks the beginning of my new healthier life. Precious hubby is beside me. I can do this! Please pray for me. Kathy

    Can't Focus?

    My date is also 5-23 and I'm completely obsessed. Sneaking to the bathroom to check this site. I really need to concentrate at work. Can't wait till it's done and there's no more second guessing.

    May 23Rd With Dr. Kelly

    I'm on the 23rd with Dr Rodriguez in Juarez. So excited!
  11. My sleeve date is May 23rd with Dr. Rodriguez in Juarez. My PCP is unfamiliar with the procedure and told me he would follow me if I would get him info about what to monitor. I'm nervous that he won't know the symptoms of a leak, etc. And he's two hours from me. Would I be smarter to find a PCP closer to home? Would a local Bariatric doctor follow me if I had the procedure in Mexico? I don't have a NUT - do I need to find one? Thanks for your suggestions! So happy I found this group!
  12. I'm glad to have this advice too. My surgeon is Dr. Rodriguez in Juarez.
  13. My surgery date is May 23rd. I will have a 10 day preop diet. Since I'm having my surgery in Mexico, I don't have a NUT. Any help you can give for protein ideas would be appreciated.
