Having or had surgery in mexico 2020



Recommended Posts

I'm having surgery in Piedras Negras with Dr. Alvarez on April 22. The only difference I've noticed between the US and Mexico is that Mexico seems to follow a standard 2-3 pre-op liquid diet depending on BMI. Are you on one right now?

Oh ok. My doctor sent me an extremely long list of OK foods for the liquid diet. I've got two weeks left before I have to start it. Lots of broth, sugar-free popsicles, a veggie Soup and Protein Shakes. Basically, you can eat broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, bell peppers, carrots and celery as much as you want, raw or cooked. I'm making several batches of a soup containing all of the veggies to freeze and take to work. I have one of those essential jobs and I can't work from home.

It's a two hour flight home, so not too worried about clots until I land. With my luck, I'll end up at Gate D1 which would be the longest walk to Ground Transportation for a domestic flight! I might have to ask for a wheelchair.

More we walk, more gas we pass .

In which I hear is pretty painfull, don't forget your gas x strips!

I feel like a walking pharmacy with all the meds I have in preparation for the surgery: chewable Tylenol, gaviscon, gas x, Dramamine, Miralax and Vitamins (gummies and patches). Not looking forward to it but it's worth it, right?
