After 35 years of succeeding and then regaining the weight I loss with a few more for good measure. I was at a cross roads of either excepting the limitations of being 100 lbs over weight, or do something that I knew would help me take and keep the weight off forever. After discovering the availability and then doing the research for a gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico I knew I had found the help I am so needing. I set my surgery weight for my Birthday. A gift that would insure I would have many more that I would enjoy. I know It's not the solution to weight regain, but it is a major tool to help me first lose and then maintain my weight loss. While recovering from the surgery I found something unexpected. A group of other sleeve, and bypass patience that not only understood my journey but my goals for weight loss and why. I found unconditional support. The hospital was excellent, the staff took excellent care of me. Yes there is a language barrier but it did not effect my care, only my friendly conversation with my caregiver. I have a long way to go in this process but I have the tools I need and the confidence I'll get there that I've never had before. Read, research and make your choice knowing you will be in good hands.
