Hello everyone I need help getting a passport



Recommended Posts

I heard recently that they can take up to 3 months. Usually takes about 6 - 8 weeks.

you can get one expedited if you have a ticket in hand, but usually have to go to a passport office and you need an appointment.

A airplane ticket

Considering you will be flying to San Diego your airline ticket will not work. What BariatricPal Team MX does for our patients is supply them with a letter stating they will be having surgery in Tijuana. Our patients have used this letter with no issues at all.

Hello Bill. I don't have a date scheduled yet but I am pretty sure I want to go with Dr. Illan. Neither my husband or I have a passport. Are you saying we really don't need one at all? What ID would we need in addition to the letter?

Hello JenSev,

If you and your husband have time to get a Passport card I strongly suggest it. This will make your return to the US faster. You can reenter the US with a certified copy of your birth certificate and a valid state issues ID or drivers license.

      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.
