I had my surgery exactly a week today and I am down 15lbs since I started pre-op. I am so happy I went with Dr Almazan, he was highly referred to me by 4 of my co-workers who had it done 5 years ago and still to this day kept the weight off. Transport from the airport to the hospital was smooth and easy, same with the arrival at the facility. Had to wait a little to before we were brought to our rooms because I wasn't they only one one and we all had to do blood work and talk to a cardiologist. The nurses are all nice and I would say when it came to blood work, definitely better than my experience in the US. The hospital i nice the rooms are really nice, my hubby and I had a balcony and ROKU TV so caught up on our shows lol. Day of the surgery is when you met the Dr and the next thing i know, I went in and woke up in my bed. Alejandra and David were the best nurses I had, always checking on us and making sure everything was fine (google translate was definitely a plus). Get up and walk every hour and bring GasX to get rid of the gas, that was the most painful for a lot of people that didn't bring them and also bring a heating pad, that was super helpful. We are now back home and doing great. I will updated again in a couple months with results and picture with before and after photos.
