I had mini gastric bypass in Tijuana Mexico with BariatricPal TeamMX. My surgeon is Dr. Selim Jalil Illan Fraijo. I've been recovering well with no complications.

I had a revision to the mini gastric bypass from the sleeve on March 31, 2016. I went to Mexico. I was scheduled with Dr. Illan but due to an emergency that morning (his appendix ruptured) Dr. Zavalza stepped in and did my surgery. No problems and I'm about 8 pounds from goal but smaller in size than I thought I would be.

I had he sleeve done 12/14. Since 18 mo the post op I have terrible heartburn and it gets so bad sometimes I vomit and it does t go away for over an hour. Even with prescription meds given for this reason.
I never had this before the sleeve. Would that be a reason to have the MGB? I'm so lost. My dr just keeps putting me o. Things . Carafate, 20mg Prilosec, liquid Zantac all hat wonderful stuff

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      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)
