Gastric Sleeve in Juarez MX



Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I recently posted about wanting surgery local here in Dallas, but here recently have been researching Gastric Sleeve in Juarez with Dr Rodriguez at Star Medical Hospital. He looks like a great doctor and I have already called and sent in my medical information. It's much cheaper in MX..which is what sent me that route. Has anyone been a patient of Dr. Rodriguez in Juarez or other doctors there?

I was just sleeved on 11/11 with Dr. Rodriguez at Star Medica. It was the best decision I have ever made. The only downside to being sleeved in MX is the language barrier speaking with the nurses. But if you know Spanish, then you'll be fine. I used a medical company called BeLiteWeight (google it) and Teri was my patient coordinator. I have no complaints with the company or the hospital/doctors. Everything went perfectly.

That makes me even more ready and excited to start this journey. I'm looking at getting it done Jan 12..Just waiting on my medical clearance. I also contacted Belightweight. How soon were you up and feeling "normal"? How many days did you have to stay in Juarez?

I flew into El Paso on Fri morning, the day of my surgery. And left Sunday morning. So two nights. I tried to get up every two hrs or so to walk the halls and I would try and do 3 "laps" each time. By Monday/Tuesday I was back to my full mobile self. A little slower than normal but I was constantly moving. I went back to work Wednesday.

Yes. Everything happened as soon as I got there and got checked into my room. Before surgery, I was researching different companies that provide the surgery all throughout Mexico. But I found BeLiteWeight to be the best, even though it is slightly more expensive than other places in Mexico to get it done.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
