Who was your Mexico Surgeon?



Recommended Posts

7500-9200 in Canadian dollars , but the OCC is one of the more expensive places. I do believe many people had great Success with Dr.illan , I think... at a much lower cost like 5500 Canadian. Just ask around in here, but make sure you pick a well known place, you need to have heard from lots of others, not 2 or 3...(I'm my books anyway)

good Luck!

Thanks veryyyy much. It seems like these Dr's are constantly moving around. I called Trinity Medical. Nice guy. Great price. He said they just hired a new surgeon. Younger guy but has done over 1000 sleeves. Dr Luis Pasten. Ever heard of him?

I haven't, to be honest I went with the OCC, cause they were on Operha , Dr.oz and another day time news show.... I would stick to there or with Dr.illan at oasis I think. Why go to the unknown.

I used Dr Elias Ortiz through ALM. My surgery was March 27 and I doing really well! I do wish I had taken 3 weeks off because I do a pretty physically demanding job and I was EXHAUSTED when I got home. As long as you can make peace with "Mexico time" and how everything takes a little longer down there- you'll be fine! (I used to live in Hawaii and Island time is a very real thing-it's similar to that)

Dr. Alvarez for me. I think he's the most expensive option for the Mexican surgeons, but he knows his stuff. He only does the VSG and I think he's done over 10,500 now.

Dr. Ponce de Leon... very good experience.

I scheduled my surgery with Dr. Ponce July 10th. I am very nervous. Could you share your experience? Thank you!

I used Dr. Illian and his team. I had surgery April 24th. The following days were wonderful due to the valets and their constant attention to my and my companions needs.

I also used Dr. Jalil Illan and had a great experience. I am 3 1/2 months post op and have lost 50 lbs. The hospital rooms were modern and the nurses were friendly and attentive. The valets with BariatricPal are wonderful. I am going back next month as my sister's companion. Believe me when I say that I wouldn't let her do this unless I had 100% confidence in Dr. Illan. She is my baby sister, best friend and a mother to two small children.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
