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.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
