Dr. Illan an NSV my first



Recommended Posts

Okay y'all. ..this is my first and finest NSV. I had my surgery with Dr. Illan on August 12th in Tijuana. I went to my PCP today and he took me completely off my diabetes medicine. I have been type 2 diabetic for 9 yrs. I have never been able to control it a good day for me was 250. The dr. Had told me my kidneys were going to fail if I didn't do something. I already had the numbness on my feet and my fingers. This surgery was my last chance. This surgery. has literally saved my life. Thank you Susan and Omar most of all thank you Dr. Illan.< /p>

I have been in full remission since March of '12. It is an awesome feeling (although I will never give up 2x week random tests and A1C tests every 4 months).

My A1C is in the normal range since the surgery and I love it. I do know that I will have to always be careful of the sugar due to the possibility of the diabetes coming back....But I can live with this.... :P

Thank you everyone and yes I have walked around all day with this silly grin on my face. It is definitely an awesome feeling. I know I will always have to watch it and yes I will continue to test also doing my A1C check. It is a small price to pay though. Peace and Blessings everyone.

You will b very well taken care of. The hospital is nice and clean. It is a holistic healing center. The cafeteria is all organic and vegan. Your care will b be very good. Not a lot of English but the point gets across. Omar ur patient coordinator is absolutely awesome he will take primo care of you. The hotel is beautiful. Dr. Illan will answer any of ur questions. You will b checked on by a Dr. While u r n the hotel. I can not say anything bad about my experience. It was really like a mini vacation ...except with major surgery. ..lol

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
