I had to say that I was very leary when my co-worker told me about gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico. How could it be safe? How could it ever compare to the hospital that I work at? I started doing research in March of 2015, and after talking to several representatives at Weight Loss Agents who answered all of my questions, I was actually considering how my life would change drastically after this procedure. Yes, we all have apprehensions about surgery under any circumstance, but I can honestly say that throughout this whole process, I have NEVER felt alone, the staff at WLA are very informative and will help calm your nerves as you take this life-changing step to better your health!

When my husband and I arrived at the hotel the night prior to surgery the staff of the hotel was friendly and helpful. The nurses station at the hotel was there 24/7 for all of my questions and needs, again I NEVER felt alone or confused about what was going to happen next in this process.

Surgery day was very organized, hospital staff were without a doubt some of the best caregivers that I have seen in my 20+ years of working in healthcare! Dr. Almanza came in and talked to us about the procedure and addressed all of our questions and concerns. Dr. Almanza also spoke about how he had the very same surgery 5 years earlier, he was not only the surgeon, but he had actually been a patient(by the way he looks amazing!) How could I not trust someone that had been through what I was about to undergo?

Surgery went very well, overnight in the hospital then back to the hotel the next day where I was greeted by one of the nurses who made sure to keep my pain under control and gave me nausea medication. The next day up early and to the radiology facility to have my leak test, where they gave me the seal of approval-No Leaks!- I felt so good that I went out shopping that afternoon!

The next day most people were given times for the shuttle to take them back to the airport, my husband and I drove to the hotel, which did cause a little confusion in the beginning with the nurses at the hotel but was quickly remedied. We were back home that afternoon and with the exception of some nausea which I was informed about, I was happy to be home!

I am two weeks post-op today and am down 15 pounds! Exercising everyday, making sure to get in all of my protein and following my post-op diet to the letter has been instrumental in this process. I can't be happier with this process from start to finish, I know that whatever questions that I have in the future, Weight Loss Agents will be here for me, they can be here for you too!
