MAY 2019 Sleevers



Recommended Posts

Hi all I am scheduled for May 3rd in Mexico. Anyone else gearing up for surgery?
I just got approved by Dr Corvala in Tijuana. Probably last of may. Still have to schedule. Still a little nervous regarding possible complications. Leaks, gerd symptoms, nausea, so many people comment on those issues, I'm a nurse and bmi of 32. 40# to lose.

Hi I will be traveling to Reynosa for sleeve on May 3rd. I’m not sure what my BMI is but My goal is 140. I think I have about 90# to lose. Maybe we can connect more and work through questions together. I know I have the same kind of questions that you do.

Did you go through Medical Tourism to find your surgeon? I am nervous too but my fears are around it not working. It has been so long with so many attempts in vain. I am not sure of my BMI off hand but I do know I’m the heaviest I have ever been and I am not as active and have far less energy. I have clothing in 6 different sizes and not a solid wardrobe in any size if that tells you anything. I just so badly want to get to a place of managing my weight instead of trying to lose a seemingly unsurmountable number. I think I should lose at least 80 lbs and I’m ready to see a new me. We will get through the nervousness because it will all be so worth it in a year from now.

Just put in bmi calculator on Google and you put in your height, weight age ance it will calculate. Free. Did not use medical tourism. Read lots of posts and my own research. Now I'm looking at Dr Ariel Ortiz with Obesity Control Center . Excellent credentials. I just emailed him questions. Will call them tomorrow to ask more questions

My surgery date is May 15th in Tijuana Mexico, Hospital Jerusalem! I have thought about this for years, but really seriously started looking into it about three weeks ago. An opportunity came up and I jumped on it and booked! May 15th it is!
