October 2013 Dominican Republic - Dominican Republic, DO

Hey everybody, here's my story. I am a 33 year old...

Hey everybody, here's my story. I am a 33 year old mother of 2 ( 14 & 16), I live in hobart Indiana, 30 mins outside of Chicago and 2 hours from Indianapolis. I'm sure that I want to go to the DR for surgery October 2013, but unsure which doctor. Duran or Yily??? I've been researching them both and I like there work. So today I sent them both a detailed email with photos requesting a quote. I will update u guys as to when they response and there price quotes. I'm so excited. Also I'm looking for a travel buddy, so let me know if interested.

Patiently waiting

Patiently waiting for my quotes from Dr. Duran and Yily, in the meantime I think i'm gonna email Dr. Baez for I quote, I just haven't seen much of her work. So if u guys can refer me to some profiles showing her work that would be great.

Received some quotes

Ok so yesterday I received a quote from Dr. Yily, she quoted 4150 for TT, fat grafting to buttocks, bbl, lipo to abdomen, armpit, back, flanks and waist, she also stated that I need to loose 10 pounds and her price does not include a compression garment. I emailed her 5 days ago so be patient ladies she will respond.

I also emailed Dr. Walkiris Robles and she gave me a quote the same day, her price is 5200 for TT, lipo on back and fat transfer to buttocks her price includes 1 compression garment and stay at recovery house for as long as necessary with 3 meals per day.

Boy do I have choices, and still waiting for response from Baez and Duran.

Decided on a doctor

Ok so I received quotes from Dra Duran, Robles, Yily and Baez, and I've decided on Dr. Duran, I love her work. She quoted me $4800, which was the most expensive of the four. My second choice is Robles and in case y'all don't know she has an all inclusive package which also includes ur stay at the recovery house. I decides on Oct 7, 2013. I am gathering supplies and I will keep u guys updated.

Need a surgery buddy

I'm wanting to have my surgery on 10/7/2013, I would like to stay in a recovery house for the first couple days then go to a hotel for the remainder of the days. Need a buddy so hit me up.

Update

Ok so, im definitel having surgery with Dr. Duran Oct 1st. Already sent a $250 deposit although i dont think she requires that. Ive called her office to confirm and also confirmed with her over facebook. Now just need to pick a recovery house, it either gonna be Angela's or Real recovery then from there to a hotel if im not comfortabl at the recovery house

38 days till surgery

So my plane ticket is bought, recovery house booked and i'm so anxious. My parents think im crazy, wish i wouldnt have told them about it. Oh yea and i had my hgb checked a couple weeks ago and it was 13.4. I have 2 wonderful surgery buddies and we all seem to mesh very well

My supplements

I take these pills at least 1 times per day, however sometimes i take the iron and vitamin C 2-3 times per day

Supplies

Supplies update

So me and my 2 surgery buddies decided that we are going to bring thermometers, stetescope and also a pulse oximetry. I have already stopped drinking liquor and i plan on eating right and exercising at least 3 days per week up until surgery. Want to be in the best health possible foru surgery

I'm here

Ok so arrived in the DR yesterday sept. 30th. Met up with my 2 surgery buddies. They are so cool. Ok so Yasmine picked us up and took us straight to CIPLA. I had my labs, xray and ekg. All is well hgb 12.9. Also had a cardiology consult, then met with Duran. She is really nice and down to earth, her office is small but chic and very upscale. She has a really warm personality and she speaks english well.

CIPLA review

Ok, so the halls in the CIPLA are hot as hell, no AC, but all the doctors offices and patient rooms r air conditioned. Also only wifi in the doctors offices and some patient rooms. The lab is clean but outdated and smells like sewage, the girl who drew my blood was very nice, she only had to stick me once, she than immediatly destroyed the needle that she stuck me with.

Oct 1 arrived at cipla 7am was admitted to my room about an hour later, a girl who im gonna assume is a nurse took a thourough medical history on me. She also checked my bp and heart rate, but no pulse ox or 02 saturation. Elizabeth who works for dr duran is very helpful. The staff at the cipla some r nice and some r stuck up, but thats everywhere. So right now im just sitting in my bed waiting to go to surgery. The power went out, but came right bavk on after about 10 seconds. Ok ladies thats all for now

Blue pill

Update

Oh yea, forgot to tell u guys, they drive like freakin idiots over here, for some strange reason it seems like everybody is in a hurry when they driving. Also at cipla u have to give 500 pesos deposit for a remote control and if u choose to get your compression stockings here it $ 35 USD
