CWT 226. lbs

Hi all I've been on this sight for over a year now and it is a wonderful site. I've been searching trying to decide if I would go into debt and have surgery here or go abroad! I found this site very helpful. I work at hospital and every time I speak with one of the physician about go Medical Tourism they start telling me how dangerous it is. I understand the risk and the risk I believe are the same regardless where the surgery is done.

As I mentioned I've been on the site for awhile and I never read where the surgery has gone bad. I hope that if this is the case the people on this site would give their stories as well. Wish me luck! I'm about ready to book and would like to know some good places in Mexico that I can have it done.

Anyone going to Mexico week of Thanksgiving

Looking for a partner the week of thanksgiving.

Gaining weight since I decided to sleeve

I think I smile just being greedy now that I decided to sleeve..... Smh in 2 weeks I've hit an all time high for myself I'm now at 230 LBS. I'm craving things I've never craved before like ice cream, milk shakes, Leah cobbler just to name a few.....

Finally Sleeved November 23, 2015

So I went to Mexico and had my surgery..... I thought I was going to be the strong person that could deal with any issue, pain, adversity, that might come up. That I would be on hear updating you guys with all of my experiences.... How wrong I was I didn't want to come on here because I felt so awful! Indigestion, heart burns, pain, nausea, you name it. Every day I'm feeling a little better but do not feel like myself. I feel like something is setting on my chest and will not move. But overall the experience in Mexico was very good much better I thought it would be.

Everyone at work has been extremely supportive so far and they can all see the weight loss that is coming off of my face and gut. I'm excited to see what happens over the next few weeks. I'm starting to get a little appetite which is scary. I still have to concentrate on eating slower i've had two accidents where I ate to quickly and it was not pretty.
