I had my Gastric sleeve surgery on August 5th, 2016 following 3 days on the pre-op diet. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty picky so i was a little bit worried about the quality of care and the quality of accommodations. Dr. Almanza and his team were amazing. Everything exceeded my expectations.
I went alone and I really appreciated being in a small group, as we went through the surgery and recovery process! I never felt alone nor did I ever fear for my safety.
I made sure that i brought everything that was recommended (heating pad, Gas X strips, etc)
For sure the first 48 hrs after surgery was rough! It is surgery!! The most important thing which they drill into our head is to walk as soon as possible and as often as possible. That makes all of the difference in the world as it eliminates the gas pain/bloating. The care at the hospital and at the hotel was fantastic. The nurses were very knowledgeable and helpful and they checked up on us twice a day, changed our bandages and they were always a phone call away as they were stationed at the hotel 24/7.
It's been three weeks since I started the 3 day pre-op diet and already I've lost 22 lbs and another 53 lbs to go. I am following the Post-op diet to the letter!!! I feel full very quickly so i don't ever worry about the quantity I eat but of course we are all responsible for the quality of food that we put in our mouth! I already have much more energy, my mood has improved tremendously and my outlook on the future is so much more positive!!! The 7 1/2 hour trip home to Canada was long and tiring but I had not pain.
Go for it! You won't regret it! Best thing I could have done at this time in my life!!!
