  1. Hi Andrea,

    I had lap-band surgery in Juarez, MX, by Dr. Jose Rodriguez. I believe he also travels to TJ to preform operations there as well. My insurance would not pay either and if I had to do again, I would certain have him do it. I have nothing but good things to say about him and his staff in Juarez. I had questions afterwards and emailed them and was anwered the next morning. My experience was great. I'm not sure if you have anyone to go with you but it really helps if you have someone to go with you. Any surgery is tough and it really helps. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Good Luck, BamaGirl64

  2. I had my surgery in Mexico ~four weeks ago and had my first post-opp visit with my US Bariatric doc yesterday. I'm having my first fill in May. Well...more like my one and only fill. He says he will give me "one good fill" of 9cc (band is 10cc). Has anyone heard of doc doing fills this way? From what I read, everyone gets many little fills. He says he's making the band do what is suppose to do and he does this with all his LAP-BAND® patients. I'm contacting my surgeon in MX to discuss but wanted to see if anyone had their fills done this way. Thanks!
