Hi, my name is Kimberly and I'm seriously considering doing the gastric sleeve revision. I'm researching for doctors credentials, patient recommendations and costs from Mexico, so if you read this and can give me your personal recommendation it would be highly appreciated. I previously had my Lap-band done by Dr. Kuri in Mexico at Hospital Angeles and had a great experience but he only does the Lap-band, so I'm on my own for the revision.

The reason I'm looking for a revision is due to a really bad allergic reaction I had to meds while undergoing a knee replacement where the Lap-band had totally closed up on me. I had to get someone to travel to me to take the saline out of my band (which solved the problem) but I have been scared ever since to get it filled again. I totally gained every pound back that I lost and need help. I fill like the sleeve is a better choice for me long term and hope to find the right doctor that can help me.
