KC VSG :) THATS GREAT! I am scheduled for May 26- 2015 but I am sure I'll be pushing it back at least a few weeks later to June 2015. We may meet :) where are you from? I live in Louisiana. I'm so excited. I research for more then two years and finally decided and paid my deposit. :) thank you for replying :)

I checked out their website as well. Great price might I add. :) I'm nervous as well but I'm sure everything will be OK. I am awaiting my passport card through the mail. Change is always scary at first :)

I am scheduled with Dr. Zavalza and several of my friends have used him. I don't agree with the statement that you get what you pay for because my friends got treated far better than other people that they met there that had surgery for more money from different doctors. I think you have to do your research. There is a wonderful Facebook group for Dr. Zavalza also.

Brela, yes I know what you mean :) there are doctors who do the same work and charge higher. Why pay higher if you can get it done for cheaper. I won't spend more if I don't have to. :) I could think of a lot of other things I could do with the extra money left over like buy a new wardrobe of course :)

Rocky1 I like the fact that with Hospital Angeles you only stay three days in the hospital then go home. The pay a a few thousand higher though. The hospital looks great from the video's . I know for sure that I'll get a hysterectomy done at Hospital Angeles after I have the gastric sleeve surgery done. A year later though. I paid the deposit to Tijuana Bariatrics but I'm still unsure of what I'll do because I hate how after you pay the deposit the phone calls and emails stop coming in :( plus five days is a lot of work missed for the surgery. I'll try sending an email again and if I receive no response, I'm moving on.

Brela, what hospital does Dr, Zavalza operate out of in Tijuana Mexico? How much was your deposit? Do they really stay in contact? Once I deposited $500 dollars the phone calls and emails stopped coming in.

      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....
