My first surgery, the sleeve was almost 7 years ago. I had the procedure done in the US and from day one, I was constantly hungry. Although my stomach was smaller and I could not eat that much, the thought of food never left because of my hunger. This led to stretching out my stomach and not being able to reach my goal weight. I have 4 family members who all went to Dr. Almanza and had great success. I was extremely skeptical when I heard about the first 3, Mexico? No way, right? Wrong! After I heard of my 4th family member going and seeing his results, I said that was the last straw. In less than 2 weeks I was signed up, scheduled, only had to get my flight and then I was on my way. Waiting for the van to pick me up was a little awkward at first but once he arrived, I soon realized there would be others also in my position. In a matter of no time, we were all exchanging our own stories. The driver was very informative, letting us know what to expect every step of the way, leaving nothing out. When we arrived at the Bali Hospital, they quickly gave us instructions and schedules on what was going to happen next. Some spoke very little English, and some did really well. You just need a little patience, and they will work with you. It wasn't long after we were taken to our room, very quiet and comfortable. Dr. Almanza and his team will come to introduce themselves. The nurses check on you often and make sure you have what you need. Speaking of what you need, you will need to bring your own bathroom essentials. They only provide soap and towels. It's not like the states, where you are given everything. But I prefer my own anyway. Besides that, all you will need are comfortable clothes, night wear, slippers and a robe. The next day you have your surgery and then spend the next day or two recovering. The morning of surgery was a lot different from the states, waiting in the room for your turn not being under anesthesia yet. Dr. Almanza comes by every morning to check on you, letting you know how you did. They know what they are doing, and you will be in good hands! I have not been hungry at all and finally have the confidence I will reach my goal weight. It's a matter of redirecting your brain.
