    Surgery in Mexico

    Hi Tara, I was wondering if you did end up going with Dr. Hidalgo? I'm seriously considering him but having a hard time finding anyone to share their experience with him. 🥴🥴🙏🙏
  2. Hi everyone, has anyone gone to CMQ with Dr. Hidalgo? I would truly appreciate any insight. He's the only surgeon so far who is able to accommodate my tight schedule. But I also want to be safe, of course. I've read as many posts here as I can, but most about CMQ are from 2013/2015. I'd very much appreciate any advice 🙏🙏🙏
  3. Hey Rene, I am considering him right now. Do you know of anyone else who was his patient? And may I ask why you chose CMQ? It's a very nerve wrecking process as I'm sure you know.
  4. Thank you!! I had heard of him. what is the pre-surgery diet like for him? Two weeks liquid+250calories in veggies? My problem is I need this done in the next two weeks due to life circumstances (kind of now or never) and my own surgery was cancelled here, otherwise I'm fully ready. I was thinking about continuing my liquid pre-surgery until I get a chance to speak with him and the other surgeon I'm considering so that won't be an impediment at least. Any advice there?
  5. The fact that an immediate family member has been eligible and on the list for 3.5 years now... they advise you themselves that you should anticipate 2-3 years and this was pre-Covid.
  6. My revision surgery was canceled in Canada two days ago due to Covid and like you, I just can't wait any longer. I am half vaccinated though. Could you kindly tell me which surgeon you chose and why? I would really appreciate any feedback 🙏🙏
