19 and sleeved!

I always hear people saying they wish they got sleeved when they were younger and I don't want to have any regrets. I've been bigger my whole life and I'm hoping this is kind of a way to start over. I never thought of getting any kind of bariatric surgery til I saw my coworker transform and lose 75 pounds in 7 months and it's very inspiring. I'm going to Tijuana to get the surgery because my...

34 - Single No Kids and an Insatiable Appetite!!! - Mexico

There was very little discussion of pre-procedure eating plan. I ate liquids only for 48hours before flying down. The process was simple. I met at the consultation center and was weighed and made my final payment. Then I was transported over to the hospital. I was given a room with a safe for my valuables and it had a private restroom and hospital bed that had an air compression bed that was amazingly comfortable. I was taken up to prep. Given my IV and meds in it, I was given 2 1/2 saline bottles which helped my hydration and I think helped with recovery the next two days. The doctor was helpful and they gave me my diet for discharge and I was transported back to the airport and flew home. I didn't have any issues with my return flight or pain.

Nervous *Orbera Procedure* - Garden City NY

Hello all. I am a 28 year old female who has struggled all my life with my weight. I have been up and down between 175 to 190. Now weighting 215 the heaviest I have ever been! I've seen a doctor and found out that I am the border of hypothyroidism. She basically said I have hypothyroidism but I am just touching number wise. So she didn't think it was smart to start me on any medication being...

Dr. Verboonen, Sheri Burke and staff have been absolutely amazing! I am almost 2 years post op and I still receive messages asking how I'm doing!

Happy to Have the Surgery but Terrified to Fly - Mexico

I'm 5 foot 2 and right now weigh about 290 pounds and I'm 60 years old. I've struggled with my weight most of my adult life but the last several years I just can't get it under control. I'm really tired of being so overweight and I'd like to spend the senior years of my life better able to enjoy myself. I love to travel by car but recently my feet and legs have been swelling when I'm traveling...

31 Year Old Mom Sleeved Across the Border - Mexico

Dr. Verboonen was very personable and checked on my and the other clients several times. His team is very caring and they do a wonderful job offering support and encouragement. His Nursing team was wonderful, they are so dedicated. They don't do surgeries every day so when there is a surgery the nurses stay there around the clock so I had the same nurses the entire time I was there. I was up walking several times the same day after my surgery. My surgery went very smooth and was finished in 40 mins.

Better Than Ever Boobs and Hello Flat Tummy! - Tijuana, Mexico

I made a you tube video with the same title, in case you wanna watch. Let's see, I have a gastric band for about 10 years. I need to get my access port replaced so I thought I would get the tummy tuck and breast lift I have wanted since I had my first in my 20's. I'm 45 now so this has been a long wait. I started saving money about 6 years ago and finally have enough (when combined with my...
