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 :)

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
