I was one of those woman that would loose 20 pounds ®ain; those 20 pounds plus 5 over the past 20 years. I was sick of being fat, was sick of not fitting into clothing that I wanted to fit into, and I scared to death of getting diabetes/High blood pressure/and all the othe diseases that come along with being obese.
I'm 5'9", was recovering from spine surgery and knew I HAD to loose the weight or I'd become a prisoner in my own body. I stepped on scale in early July and it read 258#. Tears rolled down my cheeks. I went on line to see if i qualified for gastric bypass through my insurance. I didn't have this benefit on my coverage. That's when I discovered international surgery. I did my research, called&e-mailed people tjat had gone out of the country for weight loss surgery.
Dr. Almanza was highly recommend and i felt confident in him even though I'd never met him. It was an obstacle to convince my spouse that I was going to Mexico for this,
All went as planned, surgery was quick, recovery was quick. I flew down Tuesday and was back home Saturday.
I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics and my pcp back home changed. My stitches took some time to heal. But I'm six weeks out, feeling great.

The fat is melting off of me
