Local hospital that did all of my presurgery testing is awesome however insurance denied and after three denials I’m considering Mexico. Problem is my local hospital said they won’t touch me for yearly follow ups for a sleeve done in Mexico. Folks who have done it... how did you work this issue?

I had my surgery done in Mexico and told my PCP I was having it done there. She strongly urged me not to have it done, but I did. When I returned I had the finest care she could provide--quarterly labs, referral to a nutritionist, quick answers to my questions. Find a PCP who understands you are trying to get healthy and convey that you're not having surgery in some strip mall by a person who didn't go to medical school, because all the US physicians I've talked to think that Mexico is some medical backwater instead of a sophisticated country with excellent universities.
