I found a clinic called a slimmer me.clinic the surgeon has just begun doing surgeries and the prices are very cheap, I just signed up with this app and was just wondering if anyone has heard of this clinic or the surgeon his name is Dr. Luis Enrique Montaño

I'm finding very little information on him unfortunately. I went to Mexico for mine but my surgeon was Dr. Jalil Illan and his services were great.

I just suggest being extra cautious if you're unable to find much information on the surgeon.

Please do not go to someone who is inexperienced or go to the cheepest. I had my surgery with Dr Quinones on January 25th. There are also good doctors through this site like Dr. Illan. There is already a measure of risk going to Mexico, make sure you find a good doctor.

You spent 2 years on research don't settle for anything cheap and you should always go with experience. Please take your time with choosing a surgeon. Best wishes to you

Every surgeon had to start somewhere, but where would that be?

A new surgeon should be working for years with an experienced one. Once he is experienced enough to be out on his own, he isn't new anymore.

@@livie1000 how long is the stay with them? And how much is it for the gastric Sleeve. I randomly came across them as well and wasn't able to find any YouTube videos or reviews on them or the dr.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
