Is anyone traveling March 8th to Tijuana?



Recommended Posts

I am going in March, but a week later. Please keep us posted on how you do. I am having the sleeve by Dr. Illan as well.


Ok good luck to you! Four of my very good personal friends have successfully had the procedure done with the same doctor and they are all doing so fabulous. So I'm super excited and can't wait to go!

Sunbrezer, I am scheduled to be there March 9th with Dr. Ilan. I am very nervous about it. I’m flying with my husband. I hope I have chance to see you.

Awesome! I'm nervous about going by myself. My husband is staying home with our kids . My friend suggested reaching out on the app looking for people that is traveling around the same time . Hope to get to meet you when you get there

Oh wow! I'm driving as I only live a couple hours away. Where are you staying Thur night? I haven't decided if I am driving Thur night or Fri morning. Don't really want to sit in traffic after not eating or drinking.

I'm flying in on Thursday and actually having surgery the same day. So I'll be in the hospital that day. I feel the same way about being in an airplane all morning and not having surgery until that afternoon that's going to be challenging not eating or drinking anything either.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
