@amandaraeleo I now totally understand now seeing it from that perspective, I'm new to this forum, so I wasn't aware of ppl selling doctors or coordinators posing fraudulently thank you for another perspective!!!!! Trust me I am a real person my surgery is scheduled on Jan 11, 2013, my nerves and anxiety level are all over the place. I have learned a great deal of knowledge from this forum, so I was just trying to pass on what I learned, but now I will be cautious in my posting.

Thank you for the advice and helping me see things from a different perspective, I understand totally now

This is a public forum but we still have rules our members must abide by. I understand your intent might not have been to promote or advertise your surgeon but you have to understand how it appears to everyone else.

You posted (and re-posted) the same contact and sales info about your surgeon, in multiple forums.

This is clearly not allowed according to our posted Forum Rules.

Thanks for your cooperation!

I just went alone last week and was sleeved by Aceves. I felt comfortable the whole time. I met a fellow sleever in the shuttle from the airport to the hospital' date=' had my "last meal" with them at the hotel, and we were always checking in on each other in our rooms. I never felt alone and was grateful to them for the companionship! I think you will have a similar experience and will definitely run into fellow sleevers while doing your walking in the hospital. You will be fine![/quote']

So were you able to eat a real meal before surgery?

Yes! We could go eat whatever we wanted and have no more than 2 drinks. We went to an italian restaurant inside the hotel we stayed at and I ordered a margherita pizza. I must say that I was so tired and nervous that my tummy was in knots and I could barely finish one piece. I took it "to go" and ate a couple more pieces a few hours later. I forced myself to eat something since I had been fasting for the pre-op tests. I gave the rest to the traveling companions of a fellow sleever.

I travel to Cancun Alone all the time!!! ( for Pleasure) So for my Surgery I traveled to PV alone and I had Dr. Garcia also........as far as traveling alone it really wasn't a problem but if I could make a suggestion......If you go to Obesity Guadalajara Facebook Page that is Dr Garcia's Page and book directly thru them.......There was alot of misinformation that I received from Ready4Change....Booking right thru Dr. Garcia you get info first hand

I too am going alone in Feb. My husband wants to go but it will be difficult for him to get enough time off to accompany me, I just don't want to put it off again. I'm ready to get it over with already! I pray all will be well, I have a friend that went to Dr. Almanza and she went alone. She insists that I should go alone to avoid having to entertain a guest, more time for recovery she says. I'm nervous because I've never been out of the country before and to go alone at that! I too am using Dr. Garcia and r4ac.

When is your Surgery? I am looking to book mine soon and trying to find someone to buddy up with who is also going alone. The thought of going alone scares me HAHA

I am going alone March 22 to Garcia thru Ready4Achange and I am so excited... Figuring out flights is a pain! (Huge expense to figure into budget for times needed) Does anyone know if MiHospital has WiFi?

I believe they do. I use Priceline and sign up sp they can alert you when the price drops.

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
