Can anyone tell about their experience with having surgery in Mexico? Where did you have it and with who? About how much did you spend and what was the entire process like? Sorry for all the questions. I am just nervous.

Surgery prices in Mexico vary widely, you can get as cheap as 4k, and on up to 8k. you get what you pay for. After reading a lot of horror stories, I am glad I went with Ariel Ortiz. He is not gonna kiss your butt like some of these other docs that are a little too eager, he acts like a doctor. His staff are professional. The whole process for me, took about a month- from first inquiry, to scheduling an appointment, to hauling my butt down. Glad I got it done quickly

I'm scheduled for April 14th in Mexico.

Anyone else getting it done in Mexico?

What is the way your payments were made? I was asked to make a cheque to my coordinator and not the hospital. Is this normal??

Mine is on may 23 in pierdras negras with Dr Alvarez. A bit pricier but has great reviews and seems safe to go alone. Good luck! I just love his you tube videos. Very informative.

I just had mine last week with Dr jaime Ponce de leon. Good coordinator is as crucial as the surgeon. Mine was 5000.00. Paid it all with cashier's check to the Dr. I can't believe how easy it all was, went so fast it doesn't seem real yet. I made contact with them, scheduled & done in two weeks. I had to move fast to take advantage of husband's time off. It was now or wait till July. I'm so glad it was now.

Im leaning and researching more on Bariatricsurgery.com Dr. alejandro lopez. Any one heard of him?

I used Dr Lopez last April and had a great experience! I'll be a year out on the 7th and I'm down 100lbs! I'd do it again, no question - in fact I'm going back to Tijuana for plastics in September!

I had my revision surgery with Dr Zavalza and baraitric pal!! Amazing!!! The whole process was outstanding!! David who lives in TJ is the BEST!!! You get picked up by Robert, you stay in a very nice recovery condo with Johnny right next door. They cater to you and make you feel like family!! Dr Zavalza is very cautious talks to you before surgery over skype and visits you daily. Dr Luna is right there to! You have full access to your doctors and your your support staff!! Please research Dr Z!!!

I just put down my deposit with Dr. Lopez. I'm schedule for the end of June! I'm excited and nervous!

What company did you book through? I referred my cousin to him but she can't fine him with the company I used - BariatricPal Deals.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
