  • Surgery: Gastric Sleeve
  • Surgery date: June 16th, 2015
  • Testimonial date: December 1st, 2015
  • Surgeon: Dr. Almanza
I had the gastric sleeve performed 6/16/15. I had many people who tried talking me out of it or to have it done in the US. I did a lot of research and I also have had 11 friends who had this procedure done by Dr Almanza so I felt very comfortable with my decision.
I went alone because it didn't work out with anyone's schedule to go with me. Weight Loss Agents walked me through every step of the process so I never felt alone. Once I arrived, I met 5 other people at the airport pickup shuttle having the same procedure. We quickly bonded in the shuttle on the way to the hotel. Once I arrived at the hotel, we met many others there who had this procedure and were recovering. No one had any regrets! No one had any issues. That put the rest of us at ease. I shared my hotel room with another patient who was there alone. We were each others support and it was great!
Surgery day came and I met more people who were all having the sleeve procedure. Dr Almanza came out and spoke to us and introduced himself. We were able to ask questions and take our before pictures. They weighed us before surgery and I was 203! After surgery, four of us were in a recovery room together and we were all up and walking withing hours of surgery.
The next day, we all headed back to the hotel where the nursing staff at the hotel took great care of us. The hotel had a restaurant downstairs so we could have all of the broth and jello we wanted. The nurses were just a few floors away in the hotel so that was very nice!
Now it has been 4 months since my surgery and I have gone from 203 pounds to 148 pounds and I feel amazing. This is the first time in 15 years my blood pressure is normal and I am no longer on any blood pressure medicines!! I have gone from a size 18 to a size 9 in 4 months! To hear tell me that I don't even look like the same person is wonderful! To hear my kids tell me "Mom you look amazing" is the best!
I feel like walking and running where before my feet and knees would kill me.
I have been overweight for 10 years and had tried everything. I wish I had gone and had this procedure done YEARS ago! This is the best decision I have ever made! NOW it is time to get out and enjoy life!
