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.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
