Obesity Control Center Experiences?



Recommended Posts

My insurance company will not cover any bariatric treatment, and thus I have been forced to self pay for my WLS. I looked into Dr Curry at Journey Lite Physicians in Cincinnati, OH, as he is the most affordable locally, but I still cannot pull $15000. I have started looking into WLS in Mexico and came across OCC and Dr. Ortiz. I am very impressed so far, and am ready to call for information, but wanted to get some recent experiences from those who been sleeved by Dr. Ortiz. Would love to hear your experiences. Thanks!

Did you ever have surgery at OCC with Ortiz? Just wondering how your experience was. I’m scheduled for surgery next week

I've done a ton of research. I currently being evaluated by OCC. Hopefully can get schedule for May. As an R.N. I like the fact that his hospital is JCI accredited. Very important. Dr Corvala has very good reviews as well.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
