  1. As embarrassing as this sounds I must ask. After your thighs actually breathe after all the weight loss. Does the dark area go back to its normal skin color?
  2. My insurance doesn't cover Bariatic "anything" (United Healthcare through Neighborhood). So, I have decided to go to TJ & self pay like some of you... However, deciding on what surgeon has been difficult! Please share your Dr. experiences, THE GOOD, BAD AND UGLY, I want to hear it all, please!! This will help make my decision.
  3. 8 days post op!! I have discharge coming (pinkish/yellow) out of my big incision, the one where the stomach was removed. My doctor in MX asked that I drain it. Today is the second day of draining. How long does this last? How did it get this? I've been on top of my stuff, showering twice a day, cleaning it with water and sole etc... Did anyone else have this?

    Thanks all for your concern. My doctor in MX saids its a Seroma. I am going to my PCP on Monday.

    You are right I apologize it's cafelexina I was on for the first 3 days only. Currently off antibiotics!

    Taking Riopan, it doesn't hurt and it isn't red nor is it swollen. No fever.... The correct term for what I have is a seroma my doc says... Just drain...should last 3-4 days. On day 2
  8. 4 Days away from my big day and totally freaking out! This is my very first surgery so I don't know what to expect. It has been hard with this damn liquid pre op diet...However, I am going through the "what if" stage! What if something happens to me while in surgery? What if I just diet and do it the natural way? MY NERVES ARE GETTING THE BEST OF ME!!!!!
  9. Ok, so I've done all my research and it's down to these 2 doctors in Tijuana. I'm reaching out to you guys, if there is anything you know negative or positive, please share.... I am trying to schedule my surgery end of November.
  10. Finally, decided to go with A lighter me and Dr. Elias Ortiz
  11. Following... Glad you posted his we will be having surgery on sane say, so I'm guessing we will start preop diet around the same time too
  12. Even if you come in late on 1/15 and stay in hotel in SD night before you can do pre-op testing and surgery on the same day..those were one of my first questions to Janese (coordinator). I am currently looking to reasonable hotels in SD for that one night. Excited and scared at the same time. I have also been looking at YouTube videos for years now. At first I was hesitant about TJ but the YouTube videos and this blog is what changed my mind. Real people talking about their real experiences and real videos. I figured, if it's that easy, looks safe and I can afford it then I am on my way to a healthier me. Now, I am trying to determine if I can handle this on my own or if I should being a relative....
  13. Shizwiz yes, I agree on the round of holiday goodies! That's actually part of my reason...LOL We should definitely link up. We will stay at the Marriott for the same dates, I'm sure. I also, arrive in SD on 1/15 but really late, so I have to stay in a hotel in SD then the transporter will get me.

  15. Lady Pullingns and trulyamazingtoo are you guys a staying at the Marriott? I am and will be at Mi Doctor Hospital. Hopefully, we can see each other
  16. Thanks after 3-4 years of researching and being scared, I've put my foot down and decided it needs to get done.
  17. Having surgery jan 16 but with Dr. Elias Ortiz at Mi Doctor and staying at the Marriott
  18. I will be there Jan 15, same doctor
  19. I am leaning more towards Elias Ortiz, I've heard more good things about him that the others. I'm considering Jan. 2015.
  20. Following- Dr Elias Ortiz is one of my doctors to choose from on my final surgeons list.
  21. Haven't heard of him either. I am going to Mexico in January and have narrowed my decision down to Dr. Fernando Garcia and Elias Ortiz. They are both good from what I've heard and reviews read.

  23. Scheduled to be sleeved with his wife Dr. OSuna on January 16, I narrowed it down to them. There were too many good reviews....
