  1. Hi gang, Decided to take the leap and get my life and guy sorted for good. Life time dieter nothing has worked well enough. I was contemplating going to the EOC medical centre in Mexico for my surgery ( with Dr Eliaz Ortiz & Co). I was wondering for those who have had surgerys abroad how do you managed with post op issues or (heaven forbid!) complications when you return home? Im in the UK and blessed with NHS as support, but I know that GP's love to pass people off to specialists. Can anyone share their experiences with Post Op support in the UK after returning abroad from thier surgery? Were you palmed off to a specialist? Was it NHS covered (for free) or did you have to pay per visit? Any extra insight you have would be awesome. Also ... Not sure if people can answer this one. Travelling from Mexico back to the UK after my surgery ... It's such a longer flight than most people take ... Are there things to consider going on a long flight after this type of surgery? The package offered by the medical centre is 5 days, should I extend my trip to give my body more time after surgery before stepping on the plane. Thanks for all your help in advice. GinWench
  2. ** Just an additional note: I'm not planning to go for my surgery untill all the bans on Travel are lifted in the UK. **
