    Muñekita got a reaction from Alex Brecher in Goodbye Lap-Band, Hello Mini Gastric Bypass!   
    I had my band for 10yrs and last april I had a revision to MGB. Weightloss has been slow, but it has helped me to loose a bit more. The band only helped me loose a bit and then stayed at the same weight for about 8yrs. With the mgb I have lost a few more lbs, and I feel great!

    Best of luck on your journey!

    Thank you!
    Initially, I wanted to revise to a Gastric Sleeve. I'm pre Barrett's Esophagus and suffer from acid reflux. These are contraindications to Gastric Sleeve.
    I'm using the best surgeon and best hospital in the entire universe! Dr. Illan and BariatricPal Hospital!! (I'm a bit biased in my opinion on that lol). I have 100% insurance if I wanted to have the procedure in the states but I feel more comfortable with Dr. Illan and BPH.

    I’ve been suffering from acid reflux and other side effects from my Lap-Band for many years now. It’s been an amazing tool but it’s time to say goodbye.
    I scheduled my MGB for this March 19th!!
    It’s finally happening.

    Curious for those of you who had your Surgeries in Mx, who do you go to for after care? How do you do your after care? Or any issues arise? If your insurance doesn't cover what do do or who go to after care?

    I paid out of pocket for my surgery with Dr. Fernando Garcia in Tijuana. It was $4200 which included two nights at the Marriott and ground transportation. I had a very positive experience.

    I had everything done through Kaiser. I met their requirements for surgery (I think it's 50 bmi, I could be wrong) so my insurance covered my surgery (Kaiser insurance through work) I was very fortunate that my contribution was only $500 for the entire thing.
