Any Bloodless Surgery Hospitals For Vsg In Mexico



Recommended Posts

Anyone knows any bloodless surgery hosiptals in Mexico. I am suppose to have surgery July 3 but now I am not so sure. All of these months I was told NJ BCBS covers the surgery. Now no one sure. I wont know anything until Monday. I am trying to do research just in case. I really don't want to move my date if I have to self pay. I waited 6 months. I am out of school soon and I can't take days off in September.

Not sure what you mean "bloodless" but my daughter had a great experience with Dr. Garcia and his staff at Hospial Mi Doctor in TJ.

I have BCBS also and it depends on your employeer what coverage they have choosen. My company policy said they do not cover WLS UNLESS you have a BMI 40+ or co-morbs with BMI 35+. I was a 42 BMI with co-morbs so they covered it.

I think he/she means that no bloodwillbe given to the patient.Are you Jehovahs Witness? I dont think you get blood during this surgery,unless there are complications,but you need to discuss this with your surgeon and let them know of your belief system

There are several other procedures that takes the place of blood for bloodless surgery. I want to be extra careful. Bloodless surgery is being done on all reglions better recovery, low risk, and less chance of infection.

So I just read up on this "bloodless surgery". Since this surgery is done thru tiny cuts with very little blood loss plus the instruments used to cut away the stomach stop bleeding as they staple. Unless something went terribly wrong I just don't see why anyone would need a blood transfusion. There are a lot of videos on You Tube showing this surgery. Like azquilter92 said I don't think, and I have not heard of people needing blood transfusions resulting from this surgery. Something would have to go wrong. You should ask any doctor you are considering if they have ever needed to give a patient a blood transfusion from this surgery and why. It's probably pretty rare.

I will not accept blood transfusions because of my religious beliefs. I made sure that Dr Garcia would honor my wishes in the event of an emergency and he agreed. I am scheduled for surgery July 2 and have provided him with details on blood alternatives that I will accept.

They all do "bloodless" surgery. It's minimally invasive. 4 tiny incisions that looks like a cat scratched you afterward. And like mentioned above, as they cut away the stomach it also staples it. Complications are another thing. In that case none of them can guarantee that you won't need blood or some alternative method.

Bloodless surgery is not just that blood won't be given to you. It is also the procedures used in it place. Most doctors need to be trained and certified as well as have the equipment at their hosipital in case of complication.

I had bloodless vsg here in Houston w Dr. Marvin..yes a surgeon must be trained in this technique, aware of the alternative treatments if something goes wrong, and the hospital should be equiped with things like cell savers. I also started a regiment of EPO months before surgery to build my blood count. Very important that the anethesiologist (not sure if i spelled wrong) is aware of your wishes.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
