  1. I guess I can't cut and paste here, so I'm attachiing. This is the story of how I came to accept that WLS was no longer an option unless I wanted a shorter life filled with pain. I chose Dr. Felipe Cantu in Reynosa, Mexico and I'm having a great experience. VSG in Mexico.pdf

    My VSG in Mexico (long post)

    I'm happy to provide contact information! My patient coordinator -- and a patient of Dr. Cantu's -- is Lupita Lopez. Her phone number is 512-970-6680. Their website is www.bariatricleaders.com. I had an excellent experience!

    Definitely. Should have included the cost. Base cost: $6,900. Includes doctor, hospital, anesthesiologist and nutritionist. Pre-op for blood work and Xray was $140; EKG and office visit with internist for surgery clearance was $160. They discovered and repaired a hernia. That was $200. Post-op meds were about $150. I can't think of anything I won't share! I'm grateful for all of those who posted so I could read. It really, really helps.
