Who was your Mexico Surgeon?



Recommended Posts

Dr. Jalil Illan was mine. At the time he was at the florence Hospital which was nice. They're now at the Oasis of Hope hospital and the people who've gone recently have had nothing but amazing things to say about the upgrade. It looks beautiful.

No issues! You can read about my experience here: http://www.bariatricpal.com/topic/370663-its-been-a-bumpy-one/#entry4190081

Dr. Illan was my surgeon. I had surgery on 12/12/16 and had no complications. I had mini gastric bypass. I stayed at Oasis of Hope Hospital and then went to Pueblo Hotel & Casino. Both places were nice. Dr. Illan, his surgical staff, which includes two other bariatric surgeons, the other doctors, nurses and valets were amazing. They were very attentive and made sure I was healing right and that I and my daughter had everything we needed. One of the best decisions I have ever made!!!

Dr. Ramos Kelly on 4/10/17.
Surgery was at Angeles Hospital in Tijuana and after a few days, recovery at Lucerna Hotel. My first in person consultation was the day before surgery. Prior to then, I spoke to the surgeon a couple of times and swapped multiple emails with him and his staff. Key thing is to fill out your surgeon's medical questionnaire with accurate and complete details so he/she can recommend the right procedure for you.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
