Rocky1 now I'm not saying that Tijuana Bariatrics is a bad company at all. I just figured if I have a question / concern that I would be emailed back with answers. Please refrain from replying to any of my posts. I am not on here for bullsh*t. I'm on here like everyone else, for advice! Going back and forth is so elementary. I'm grown. I don't have time for all that. I'm not trying to be pushy and sound snobbish or do I want to deal with people who portray their self that way. Thank you but no thank you :)

@@lorenas331, not yet. I've decided to do more research on Dr. Zavalza. I see they also perform their surgeries at the Florence Hospital in Tijuana Mexico and they have a doctor who does the dental implants. I'm waiting to here back from them with a quote on the dental implants. Dr, Zavalza charges the same as Dr, Garcia. Which is still great. I'm trying to get two things done around the same time. One week/7 days is all I'll have off of work. ((I got billzzzz)) :) :)

@@kimmorgan no I don't. I'm not really into Facebook. I received the email with the forms to fill out and send back. I'll be doing that first thing this morning when I get off. :) I should be getting a quote for the dental implants surgery this week as well.

I would NEVER have a dental procedure at the same time as another major surgery. Any dental procedure or oral surgery tends to release bacteria into the bloodstream and you don't want that bacteria seeding your surgical site. In fact, in the US, depending on the type of surgery, they advise against any dental work for 6 months postop. Of course you can take antibiotics, but it was the antibiotics I was given for a tooth root abscess that caused my C. diff infection 2 months post VSG. Not a fun experience.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
