Hi, I had my surgery at Bajanor with the Dr. Carlos and his brother Allessandri. It was a wonderful experience. Of course having the surgery in Mexico was weird because their standards are different. I am sorry I ddin't post before you had it. Please let me know how it went. alohajo

I just saw your post. I had my surgery done there October 2007. INCREDIBLE! They are great. I've stayed in touch with them throughout the process. I had a number of problems arise (gall bladder related) and they've been a great support throughout the entire ordeal. Dr. Carlos Alessandrini is the CEO of Bajanor. He coordinates the process. Dr. Miguel Alessandrini, his brother, will handle any questions, problems, follow up, fills, etc...... The surgeon is Dr. Covarrubias. He's absolutely wonderful. Very kind, very patient, HUMBLE! They cater to us obese Americans. This is their basis of work, so they are very skilled at it. You are in good hands with them. The hospital is not like the US hospitals. But they are clean, private, and sanitary. I'd go back there again, and do for my fills, and I recommend them to anyone. They have a special right now, $6,500 which is incredible! Let me know what you decide!

You sound like you are a spokeperson from there. My experience was completely different. I don't see how torn comforter that was used a a blanket and coverlet over pillow also had holes in it. I had complications and I was sent home. Nurses didn't speak English not even the Band-Aid, Jello. I was given medication with out being asked if I was allergic to any of them I was and the nurses didn't even understand what we were saying. Luckily I wasn't given any at that time. We were sent home with Mexican medication with no instructions. We threw them away, the boxes were printed in Spanish. There was so many problems like the hospital they showed on their website was not even in site, they used some other building where people could come sit on a couch and take naps for a cool place to stay. I would never ever tell any one to go there!

When you are in Mexico, you will get meds in Spanish. Just like in Egypt, they will be printed in Arabic. They all come from the same pharmaceutical company. I never had torn sheets, etc....... granted they are not the same quality as here in the states, but that's why we paid $15,000 less than we would here. I hope the end results were successfull for you. I"ve had a great experience with them, and results have been ideal outside of my gall bladder issue. I'm 25 lbs from goal, they continue to support my weight loss, correspond via email regularly. When I look at the website, the picture is the same as the side of the building in the parking area, and the waiting room is definately the same as well. I"m sorry you didn't share the same experience. I"m talking with them now about a Tummy Tuck sometimes this winter. I found great support, Dr.'s and friends at Bajanor.

i didnt have a very positive experience there either. i agree with joiful....i wouldnt reccomend them to anyone. i have had sucess with my band and im at my goal weight, but in the beginning (2 years ago) i went to a place in dallas for my first fill. the fill dr said he thought my band slipped and sent me home with an xray that i mailed to dr carlos...he confirmed that my band had slipped and told me to come have it fixed immediately for the bargain price of $4000. when i went and got a second opinion i found out that it was perfectly fine!!!!!!! he wanted me to come have my band "fixed" when it was never broken!

I agree about the bed and still the pictures were not the same as their website. It was hell never ever would I ever suggest going to see them. They are not $15,000 cheaper. You can get banded in the states for around $16,000 or less. I had spinal surgery in Oct. 2008 and I got over my surgey much quicker than I did getting my Lapband. Not speaking English is critical to any one's care and simple of words were not understandable to them. Having complications could have caused my death but I got over it but it was a struggle.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
