I am going for vsg with dr Corvala on 2/21/20 and im starting to freak out. I put my deposit down my flight is booked but i have not made my hotel reservations yet. Im going alone which is why i think im more nervous than usual. Im actually gonna stay a few extra days in Hotel Lucerne so im going from the 20th to the 26th from Florida. If anyone can ease my fears let me know if they are going at the same time id love to hear anything about anyone's past experience as well. The good the bad and the ugly.

While the experience can seem scary at the time with the language barrier, the over all experience was amazing. The staff was very prompt to make sure that you are not exceeding the time for meds. After being in the hospital for the couple of days, I was extremely anxious to get home and had wished that we hadn't stayed an extra night just in case (although I was glad I did). If you have the option to upgrade to first class coming home, I would recommend it as it was great to have the extra room as you will likely be uncomfortable. Make sure to get extra bandages from the hospital for your hotel stay (something I failed to do and I was stuck using a wash cloth as a bandage coming home) and I had used an antiseptic wash whenever I showered.

I'm almost two years out 3/22/17, surgery weight 183, current I range between 126-131. Wish I would have done it sooner.

I flew to San Diego 2/13 alone and had gastric bypass 2/14. They kept me there 4 nights and took me back to the airport. The cost out of pocket was $11k, half the price of a self pay in Florida. This amount covered everything and it was a success. I am down 43 lbs and tomorrow it will be 8 weeks. The hospital is nice and the nurses and doctors were very good. I have received no follow up at all but they gave me numbers to call if I want to. I have felt really good with no issues. I recommend Dr Corvala and his team. Helps if you learn a little Spanish though! Hope everyone's surgery goes great and be well!

How did your surgery go @fonegirl66? I'm scheduled to have my surgery with Dr. Corvala on 6/26/20 and would greatly appreciate any input. Very nervous of course...

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.

      I'm new to this weight loss journey and not going to lie about its touch and can be quiet over whelming sometimes.

        I agree, I just came home yesterday from being sleeved and there's so much to get used to. I know I can do this and don't regret my decision at all.

        Not going to lie this is one of the hardest things I have ever done and dare someone to say I took the easy way to weight loss LOL! Hang in there the first couple of weeks are hard. But it gets better 😉
