I started my journey on January 6, 2015. Had my surgery in Juarez Mexico with surgeon Rodriguez Villareal Jose Guadelupe. the pictures are from Sept 14, 2015 and January 6, 2016. to date I have lost 71 pounds... my goal is/was to loose 80 pounds. I have cured a liver ailment, by having lost this weight. I can do all the things I was struggling to do a year ago...like walk... ride my bike with ease, chase my grand children... and my self esteem has grown 10 fold. I can not encourage anyone considering this enough... it has been the best life saving thing I could ever of done for myself.
I went to Juarez by myself... for me, that is the one and only thing I would not do again... it was lonely as the language barrier was huge. very few nursing staff spoke English. the Surgeon did, and was very kind and compassionate. I had no medical issues afterwards and healed quickly and with VERY minimal pain... more discomfort versus pain. Learning to eat the proper amounts took a couple weeks... like one to many bites and I had trouble keeping foods down, but that was easily learned.... I would do this over in a heart beat, just for me, I would bring someone with me...
Thank you BeLite, for organizing this surgery for me...
