Banded in Mexacali and drove there?



Recommended Posts

Anyone banded in Mexacali and drove there? Did you drive into Mexico or park on the CA. side and let someone pick you up? I'm bring hubby along (bless his heart!!!!) - is the couch comfortable at the hospital in the room? THanks.

the couch is pretty comfortable and the food at the hotel is pretty good.

as for the car, it's pretty safe to drive all the way to the hospital, they've got a good parking lot and it's close to the border. if you leave it at the border in calexico, then you will have to cross walking and take a taxi....just remember you have to do that after your surgery - unless there's someone who can take you from the border to the hospital.

whichever way goodluck!!!:crying:

We picked up a couple at that Calexico airport parking lot and dropped them off on the way back to San Diego. So either way would probably work. Good luck!

My husband and I drove, parked in Calexico, walked across and Yolanda picked us up. Ernesto drove us back to the US on his way to San Diego and took us right TO OUR CAR in the parking lot. Nothing to it. We did use a taxi a few times while there. No problems with that. We went an extra day early.

My husband had no complaints about the couch.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
