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 met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
