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...

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
