Being Sleeved With Dr. Rodriguez @ Star Medica - February 11Th

Recommended Posts

What a rollercoaster ride this last month has been!!!!

After all my posts searching for others with the Molina band (and finally having it removed successfully), being scheduled with Dr. Kelly for my sleeve on 2/21/12 and having to cancel due to ALM being VERY UNPROFESSIONAL (and Dr. Kelly not having the ability to take my FSA credit card either :( ), I have decided to have my surgery with Dr. Jose Rodruguez in Juarez, MX at Star Medica Hospital. I was able to talk to him and a couple of his patients on the phone and through email that also had a band with tummy scar tissue and feel confident that he is the right doc for me. :)

Guess my $20MM question is...

Is anyone else scheduled for surgery that weekend with Dr. Rodriguez? I will be at Star Medica with my husband from 2/10 - 2/13 with my actual surgery date being 2/11.

Just looking for others that will share my surgiversary. :)

I scheduled with Dr. Rodriguez too for March 30th in Juarez Mexico. His credentials are awesome. I know a guy's friend works at the American Embassy in Juarez and he cannot say enough good things about this hospital. I also love the fact that I will be in a hospital all 4 days. Very excited for you. Great choice.

I have to say though A Lighter Me peeps were very nice to me. I thought of re-booking w/ them but they have a lot on their plate right now w/ Dr. Kelly-Dr. Garcia situation. Didn't want to bother them. But Sandy and Ms. Linda were very nice.

Star Medica IT IS!!! If you use google earth you can see how nice the area is too.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
