I am 5 days post op with dr.illan and I would choose him and his staff all day every day all over again. I had an amazing experience as well as my mom that came with me. We were both taken care of 100% of the time. Surgery (sleeve) went smooth and I have been up walking and good to go since a couple hours after surgery. Good luck with your decision and have a wonderful surgery and a great recovery!!

Thanks, Im glad to hear everything is going so well thus far i hope you continue to have positive results

I’m 11 days post op from a mini gastric bypass with Dr. Illan. I would choose him a million times over if I had to! The facility was wonderful, everyone was amazing, and Dr. Illan is seriously just incredible.

Thanks, its good to hear such positive Vibes

Has anyone had any experience with Dr Montano with A Slimmer Me or Dr Jalil Illan with BariatricPal MX, Just really up in the air with which one?

Terri664.... I am just over 2 months post op, had the VSG with Dr. Illan 🤗🤗 I did a lot of research for several months before deciding on Dr. Illan and the BP MX team. And am so happy, thrilled, relieved and thankful that I chose him. The hospital is new and clean, the staff is super caring and friendly, and the surgery was effortless (at least for me as the patient lol... i woke up after surgery wondering if I had actually had surgery haha!).

Hands down, Dr. Illan should be your choice. You won't regret 🤗🤗

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
