    Best decision of my life.

    I was nervous even up to the point when it was actual surgery time. Nervous about how well i would do and nervous about what would change about me. I even contiplated bedore they put me under to change my mind but im glad I didn't. I am only about 3 weeks pos op but in these 3 weeks I've learned so ... *

    Why did I wait??

    I was sleeved May 26, 2017. I am SO PLEASED with how things have turned out. In the 2 1/2 months since surgery I have lost 65 pounds and gone from a size 26 to an 18. Still losing, still feeling better with each day! It takes some getting used to, but just FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!! If you do as y... *

    Infinite possibilities for my future!

    Hi, I'll admit that I was extremely weary, nervous, and even scared about the whole process, But I quickly learned that I was NOT alone. The entire Medical team exceeded my expectations and made me feel at ease with myself, and sure of the infinite possibilities for my future. I may not see much cha... *

    Best decision I have ever made.

    My experience was very good. The doctor was nice and the procedure went smooth. The after care was ok however being in a hotel was weird and they could have used more staff. I think they should have a clinic for after care. The entire experience was unforgettable and I wish I would have done it soon... *

    Made it

    Trip went fine, procedure seemed to go well... hotel was nice.a one on one with Dr. After procedure would of been nice though.... *

    To go or not to go.

    When the idea of surgery came up I was very weary of it especially of going to Mexico to have it but now that it is done I would not change it for anything. I clocked my heaviest weight at 323 lbs and am now 176. The road has not been easy but is so worth it. Since the surgery I have gotten married ... *

    3 months today!

    WOW....Do I feel like a new person! If you are on the fence about doing this, DO THIS!

    Today is 3 months since I had my surgery. Everything is healing good, I feel good and I can do so much more than I could do 3 months ago. My surgery has almost paid for itself because I don't buy kegs of Diet Cok... *

    Life changing!

    SW: 280
    I can't believe it's only been 3 months! It has been an amazing journey. I no longer take medicines, my feet are normal, & I no longer fall asleep throughout the day! It has changed my whole life! ... *

    Don't wait

    The best decision I ever made and only wish I had made it earlier. Down 80lbs in a year and I feel like a whole new person. My blood pressure is normal for the first time in years and I can tackle "normal" physical activities without loss of breath. It's not a miracle cure nor an easy button. It's a... *

    Great Experience

    My experience with weight loss agents was great. They made it everything so easy that all I had to worry about was getting well after surgery. Hospital staff was great, hotel staff went above and beyond and scheduling was also easy.... *
