I had my sleeve surgery October 23, 2017 ... I am on my 3rd week and down 18lbs!!! The staff is VERY polite. My husband and I along with 2 other ladies were picked up at the airport very soon after we landed. We greeted by Oscar who placed our luggage in the van and off we went! I must admit I was a little nervous and skeptical but the staff in the hotel and the hospital were nothing short of top notch! We arrived at the hotel and were briefed about the next 12 hours. Hubby & I unpacked and then walked around the beautiful hotel. The 4 of us getting surgery the next morning & our companions were in the hotel lobby bright and early the next morning and were driven to the hospital. There we were greeted by a lovely nurse/tech who took us to our pre-op area. There we met with the cardiologist, anesthesiologist and the surgeon ... all were wonderful! We each got our IVs and off to surgery we went! The 4 of us shared a recoop/post-op room and we were told to walk as much as possible when we felt like it. We all walked the floors of the hospital many, many times into the night :). We stayed in recovery in the hospital for a full day and the next day were driven back to the hotel. The 1st floor of the hotel is fully staff with a doctor, nurses, techs, popsicles, bandages, etc. They even took us into town to do some shopping on Wednesday! All in all a great trip! Hubby and I flew in on Sunday and flew home Thursday. I went to work Monday. Minor pain but nothing Tylenol couldn't handle. Definitely one of the best decisions I ever made! I took my life back and am no longer a slave to food. Thank you Dr. Almanza & staff!!!
