New -- Surgery next week



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm new to this whole experience and will have surgery on 01/09/2013. Does anyone know what are the best brand of chewable vitamins and best Protein Shakes? I am so worried... my decision was last minute! I'm not extremely obese, but have been overweight most of my life and got sick and tired of dieting and regaining the weight back. My Doctor's name is Dr. Ismael Cabrera (TJ, Mexico), did anyone ever hear of him? He is listed as one of the top doctors in TJ, Mexico for 2012. They also asked me for my thyroid profile before they can approve my surgery! I had to take a blood test and fax them the results.

As far as Vitamins go, I use the Celebrate brand that I purchase through my doctors office but they are available online also. As far as your surgeon goes, there is a section on the forum dedicated to Mexico so I'm sure you can find out info there on him. Good luck and congratulations

Thank you both for replying to my message. Yes, I am worried and excited at the same time! I will let you know how the surgery goes if I'm not that tired and sick. I have never been to Mexico before, so I'm nervous about that too.

I too am going to Mexico in Feb for surgery. I am also very nervous about going. I've never been too. Can't offer any info about the doc because I never researched him. Like one poster mentioned, there is a Mexico forum you can place his name in the search engine. I'm sure you can find some info on him there. Well congrats on your life changing step and good luck.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
