  13. I am 5 days post op.I got sleeved april 15 in tijuana Mexico with Dr. Garcia at florence hospital. My first 3 Days were Horrible. I had servere nauesa an vomitting and felt like a elephant sittting on my chest. I had trouble getting my fluids in but by the 4 Day it got easier. but today I can get all my required fluids in and then some alittle concerned i dont want to stretch out my sleeve. Most of the staff was great at the hospital. Dr. Garcia and his team was very friendly. Melissa the onsite cooridator was great, answered all my questions. I felt safe at the hospital with my personal belongings being out. The night before discharge a dr from Dr. Garcia team came and answered all my questions and was very nice an hot that was a plus. I felt very safe being in tijuana. The hotel where u stay (marriott) is beautiful. The staff was very friendly and spoke english well. I highly recommened going to mexico to get sleeved. My experience was great. I have no regrets being sleeved.I pray my journe keeps going good. And I meet some great girls being sleeved the same day as me with Dr. Garcia.
