  1. Hello all, Im so excited, my flight has been booked and everything is a go. Is there anyone traveling to MX in February? Please let me know. Has anyone used to Rod and the ladies at Beliteweight?
  2. Hello, I will be in Jaurez Mexico on that date with Dr Rodriguez. I wish we could travel together. Im a little nervous going by myself....
  3. Same here. I know that my PCP will not be receptive of me going to MX, and I have chosen not to discuss this with him. I did however discuss it with my Cardiology andshe has been very positive. I too have been researching MX and Dr Rodriguez for almost a year now. I have chosen to put off my surgery until February 2014, since it will be self-pay and it never helps to keep researching. Next year, I will be changing my PCP, so there is no need for me to go through all the negativity with my current PCP now. I feel it is hard and sometimes challenging to discuss Mexico with family and co-workers, so I have decided to narrow my conversations to my best friend. She will also be accompanying me to Juarez, Mexico, and I know she will be right there to make sure things go as planned and to make sure I get the best care. I am married, and my husband is all for the surgery, but I have not told him that it will be in MX. I know that he will not be happy and he probably will be against it. Yes, I will tell him, but before I do, I need to keep researching MX. He will need to see facts and will need more info on Dr Rodriguez. I wish you the best of luck. FYI, has anyone had any luck with your Flexible Spending and paying for surgery?

    Belite weight experience?

    I am scheduled for sleeve in February 2014. Since it will be self-pay, I wanted to research a little more; so I rescheduled my surgery from Sept 2013 to Feb 2014. I have chosen Dr Rodriguez and I will have my surgery at the TJ facility. JoAnne at Belite has been assisting me. Take your time and do the research, at least I am. So far, I have heard positive results, especially on this site. Wishing you all the best!
