Recommended Posts

I went to mexico bariatric center for a gasteric sleeve surgery in on June 11th. Dr. Louisana Valenzuela was my surgeon. I would recommend them to anyone interestes in going to mexico for surgery. If you have any questions let me no. So far i am down 35lbs from when i started the preop diet. No complications either.

I read on Yelp they were not that clean? Someone mentioned an oxygen mask on the floor being reused and a blood splattered stretcher.

Ya i read a few bad reviews to BUT I had a friend wgo went there first hand and experienced it. I trusted here over those reviews. I never saw any blood on the floor or them reusing anything. And i was on the look out for that. I justed wanted to give them an honest review for others considering mexico for sleeve surgery. I am 28 days post surgery. I feel great and am down about 37 lbs. Its an option for people and i would recommend them.

I had GBS in Nov 2021 with Dr. Christian Rodriguez Lopez and all went well. I had no issues with cleanliness. The equipment like the bed and IV monitor/stand is dated, but I understand they’re building a new bariatric center.

He also fixed a hiatal hernia and that alone has drastically improved my life!

This was a good option for me, but I also consulted with my primary care doctor before and after going. Be aware that once you leave, the followup is mainly mass emails about progressing through the different diet phases. I wanted to be sure I had regular followup with a medical professional.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?

      Well recovering from gallbladder removal was a lot like recovering from the modified duodenal switch surgery, twice in 4 months yay 🥳😭. I'm having to battle cravings for everything i shouldn't have, on top of trying to figure out what happens after i eat something. Sigh, let me fast forward a couple of months when everyday isn't a constant battle and i can function like a normal person again! 😞

        I may have to have gall bladder surgery during my weight loss surgery. Not thrilled about it either but do not want 2 recovery times. Just want it over with.

        Thanks for your post. I may need to rethink my decision... :(
