From the beginning I was nervous but I had a friend that had it done and I decide to go for it , I'm so glad I did ! I never would have done it here in the US because of so much money and seminars , I just couldn't spare the time
The whole trip was without any problems . There were no surprises . I only waisted some money buying first class air tickets because I thought id be miserable on the plane ride from San Diago to Mississippi . I could have bought regular tickets , It turns out the day I flew home which was 4 th day from surgery I rode my Harley , probably shouldn't have but I felt fine , hardly any stomach pain
Anyway I know it was the best for me , I was close to 300lbs and on blood pressure meds , borderline diabetic , sweating all the time., now I'm 225lbs no bp meds and now wear a coat in cold weather :) , I feel great!!
I'm signed up on my old softball team that I used to love to play every weekend
I'd do it over again in a second ,
I have a family member and a close friend signed up with Dr Almanza this February I'm going with them for moral support
It will be exciting to go back to the place that changed my
I thank The lord Jesus for this experience and for Dr Almanza's team for doing what God allows them to do
