    Pre Op Diet

    Its good to hear that all you guys are doing it..... I am diabetic and even though i haven't start mine yet, i know is going to be hard. When i got the diet from my cordinator i try it for one day and it was bad, i got so sick and drepressed that i gave up. my sugar levels when down it was such a bad feeling that i was not able to do it. The sad is part was that i try to contact my doctor and no luck the cordinator was not able to tell me what to do, even worst.... The good new was after no luck on my prior doctor or cordinator i decide to look for another doctor, I did and this doctor told me that i only have to do it for 3 days, i con only do yogurt any kind, protein shakes and suger free yello which i think is going to work for me.

By 3pm OMG i was sick, i was feeling shaky, i was in a bad mood, i have a big my head was hurting, by 3:30 i felt i was going to faint if i didn't eat. ( i wash shaky and sweety ) So I had to run to subway i bought my self a 6" ham sand with all the veggis. I didn't eat the bread but i eat the ham, lettuce, tomato, OMG that help......

    Pre-Op Lab Work

    That was the same question that i had too. Here is the USA they do the labs at lest 1 week before surgery, But in MX it looks like they do everyhting on the same day. I am guessing that they have the lab with the hospital and they get all the results with hours. N here they had to send you blood some where else.
  15. Nothing. funny but you're traying to stay a wake and less then 2min you are out. When is over you just hear people calling out you name and telling you to wake up that is over. Only in one of my surgery i felt when they took out the tube out of my mounth. I had many surgery in past. So don't worried cz you won't feel a thing

    Alvarez Price Vs Us?

    In Los Angeles Area your are looking at $20k to 35K and this doesn't include the labs or ekgs. For me I'M only 3hrs away from Tijuana and paying at a lot less with Dr. Garcia, which based on the reviews he has a lot of experience and all the reviews here are great. Good luck
  19. Hi. Does that are having surgery or had surgery with Dr. Garcia how much di you guys paid?

    Self Pay Usa

    Usually yes, Here in california I met with my doctor and the amount he gave me ($20,000) this include surgery, 1 night at hospital, all his fee. The only think i had to pay at was for the nut witch it was $250 at front and $500 for the therapist, but they the $750.00 i was paying at front i was able to deduct from 20k. The only thing that the 20k dint include was the all the labs and ekg. Now the 20k had to be paid 10 days b4 the surgery. do to all this I decide to do it in Tj. witch include everything for $5,000.00 I hope it helps. .
