Oh my gosh, it went fantastically well. I did not love traveling from Atlanta to Las Vegas during Covid but that worked out OK. My companion, my husband, was a little bored in Vegas, given that we were being so careful. The hotel was wonderful, the staff was wonderful, my surgery went off without a hitch. The in-room fluids and next day fluids were lifesavers. I was back at work five days after surgery. Here is where I am -

5’9” - 52 years old

HW - 255

SW - 237 - BMI 35

CW - 217 - BMI 32

GW - 165

Alabama surgical associates in Huntsville. 10k and because its self pay, you get booked immediately. Dr. Doucette is phenomenal. I wouldn't recommend leaving the country. If there is a restricted flight or COVID lockdown/quarantine, you are stuck in another country. Also, it can be up to a year to get a passport approved. I checked on that myself because my husband had his done in Mexico for 5k. If a new virus wave happens, better be in this country so you can drive home if flights are locked down......

I had my surgery in PV, Mexico. $5000 total (including airfare). Happy to answer any questions. I researched this 3 years before doing it. Great experience and care!

I have a BMI of 32. I have called a few places in my state (Utah) and they all say I need to have a BMI of 35 or higher. I know that I will have to pay out of pocket, but I am having a hard time finding somewhere that will do the surgery for a sleeve with BMI 32. Where have you had your surgeries?

My bmi was 33 and i had surgery in Turkey.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
