  1. I’m headed to BariatricPal Mexico to have a gastric sleeve at the end of this month. I have a desk job and when I had my gallbladder out last year, I was only out from work for about 5 days. I was sore and got tired easily but I was fine. I’m hoping it’s about the same recovery time with the sleeve surgery. When did you all go back to work?
  2. I hope to be back at work by the time you’re headed to surgery. Are you going to Mexico too?
  3. I’m scheduled to have a sleeve in August and have RA, which is an autoimmune disease. I’m just curious if anyone with RA has had any complications or healing issues? I’m 52 y/o. 5ft 7in. 235lbs. I’m confident in my decision to have this procedure and having it at BariatricPal MX, I’m just nervous about being off my RA meds and having a compromised immune system.
  4. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement, Dr. Illan. Coming from you means a lot to me. I’ll try to stop being such a nervous Nellie! Lol. See y’all soon !!
