Had mine in TJ over 6 years ago. Great experience, quality medical care (I'm a retired RN so I know the difference), easy recovery, no complications. However, there are good and bad surgeons/facilities on both sides of the border, so without knowing your surgeon, there's no way to compare my experience to what yours will be. Congrats and good luck!

I'm getting surgery on 2/18 at Tijuana Bariatrics (Dr's Garcia & Vazquez are there). My coworker used Garcia about 6 months ago & raved about them, and she's doing great! I've encountered others that have used them too, all positive reviews. Best of luck to you!

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
