I had the sleeve three years ago and I have had amazing results. I lost 150 pounds in one year. I have never started back eating bread, rice, corn, popcorn etc. I have started eating things that I really shouldn't and I found myself gaining about 10 pounds. I have now started the keto diet and am doing that and I am having amazing results. If anyone is on the fence about going to Mexico (Tijuana) and having it done do not hesitate. The care was top notch. The hotel facilities were clean and updated. They picked me up in San Diego at the airport and took me to the hotel and then the next morning to the hospital. I stayed one night in the hospital and the other three nights at the hotel. They have a dr and nurses that come to your room and monitor you. Great care and I have absolutely no regrets. I was a size 24 going in and now I am a 10/12. I didnt get to my goal of 150 but I got to 160 and I am happy with the way I look.. Good luck to anyone having this surgery. My bff is having it Nov 1 and I am traveling with her to offer her support and encouragement. Prayers for my friend Lynda!
