For a long time suffered with my weigh had a knee injury that only made it worst very pain full. Tried all kinds of diets and nothing worked, the weight just kept coming on and unless I did something fast I was heading into knee replacement. At 47 I was very upset and did not want that. I didn't like to see myself in he mirror anymore. For a while a couple of my co-workers had told me about this procedure but I was afraid and always put other things before me. After seeing a co-worker who had gone recently and had lost so much weight and she told me her experience. Finally prayed on it and went for it, scheduled my surgery and prepared for my journey. On May 28th flew to San Diego and a very nice driver was awaiting to transport us to Tijuana, Mexico. The facility and the team that was waiting for our arrival where very nice and friendly made us feel at home. On the morning of the 29th Dr.Almanza came to explain and talk to us about the surgery and then to surgery. Had my surgery then to recovery room and to my room. Started to walk about one hour later after being in my room. Had no pain just a little discomfort from the gas and walking made it so much better. All the staff where always supportive and helpful. After 2 days we went to the Hotel Hacienda very nice and all the staff took good care of us. Finally we came home and I'm very happy with my journey started with 235 pounds and so proud to say that as of June 19 I have lost 27 pounds. Feel great eating and followings all the indications, my leg feels so much better getting this weight off. So excited and thankful to God, Dr. Almanza and all the team for helping me regain my life!!!
