July Tijuana Sleeve Buddy in Mexico & Self-Pay Weight Loss Surgery Posted June 7, 2015 @@ABB'sObesityFight Hey! Things are going pretty good so far. I have been doing a longer pre-op to try and get my BMI down before surgery. It hasn't been as hard as I thought it was going to be. I guess since I am so focused and determined, it truly is mind over matter at this point. I don't think I we will be at the same hotels. I know most everyone goes to the Marriott but Dr. Kelly's patients don't.
