She's in Mexico and Self Pay section and it doesn't have much movement, she's right.

No clue on Mexico but there are some members here that got it done for around 13k in cash - My ex wife is looking to get it done and i looked at mexico, By the time you book a flight, Hotel and the surgery you only save around 3k. To me the risk is not worth 3k -

Do what my buddy did get a few Credit cards and put it on there then pay it off with the money saved from not eating out and eating as much

Good luck

I've looked at some prices and airfare ... I'm totaling up to around $5,500 and know multiple folks who have had it done. I'm dead set on having this surgery before the end of Feb lol if that means I'm Mexico bound then so be it!!!

Did it Talinn, Estonia. Paid 5000 euros for it. It's about 5000 dollars. Mini gastric bypass with Dr Ilmar Kaur. So not exactly Mexico, but..

Very pleased, no issues except had recently some gallbladder inflamation. Operated on by 9 in the morning, up and about around 14.00. No sick leave, no dumping, no nausea, can tolerate almost every food. Good blood test. Very fine healing of my wounds. All in all, as 3 months out things are much better than anticipated.

I would love the mini bypass but, I'm thinking price wise in Mexico the sleeve is my best option! I'm glad you're doing awesome... KEEP IT UP

HI India- I went through a place called BeLightWeight, I had the sleeve done in September in Mexico. Total cost was 6800 and extra 50 for meds that I was able to bring home after surgery. Spent about 500 for round trip airline tickets for me and my husband. Belightweight made transportation arrangement from the airport to the hospital (& from the hospital back to the airport) where we both stayed for the entire process. The only thing we had to pay extra was for my husbands meals.

I feel the only negative thing about this was not having the extra support from the doctor or nutritionist (they did send me home with a lot of information and instructions), however my doctor has been great about the whole process and did all my blood work when I got back to see where are my levels were (was low on vit D-) and she has been monitoring me since. And I do/could reach out to the team at BeLightWeight as well with other question and they did call me a few times to check in.

hope you find this helpful...this is my 1st post :)

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
